The 2021 Race to the Sky has been cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions. We apologize to the mushers, sponsors and volunteers and hope to see all of you back in 2022 for the best Race to the Sky ever!                     

MSDI Board of Directors


Race to the Sky is Montana’s premier winter sporting event. We are part of the Rocky Mountain Triple Crown and an Iditarod qualifier.  We are recognized as one of the most challenging and beautiful sled dog races in the world. Our Races are a test of physical strength, mental toughness, teamwork, and a special bond between “man” and his canine friends. Working together, teams negotiate the trail through Montana’s scenic Rocky Mountains. Join us again next February 12-16th 2021 for another exciting Race to the Sky!
