More than 80 mushers are taking on the 1,000-mile Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race this March. Though the ceremonial start in Anchorage looks like it'll be slushy this year, the teams will likely still battle white-out blizzards and gale-force winds on their trip to Nome. Because of the distance and remoteness of the trail, the race can be difficult to follow, but now, thanks to Google, you can check out the route via Street View.

During the 2015 race, Google outfitted Dean Osmar, the 1984 winner, with its 360-degree Street View camera. Now, using Google's Iditarod landing page, you can check out what life is like along a racecourse that takes the fastest finishers nearly nine days to cover.
