The volunteers in Carmacks are ready to welcome the first mushers, but problems with the tracking system leave them unable to guess the exact time of their arrival. In the end, it's not until around midday that the first teams arrive and make their obligatory stop. Not overstaying their welcome, they leave at the end of the afternoon for the third checkpoint, Pelly Crossing. But a major obstacle is present on the river that forms part of the 117-km trail between the two checkpoints: jumbles of ice. Both mushers and dogs begin to feel the effects of the constant cold as conditions on the trail grow worse. Some teams will fall victim to them. Those in the lead are approaching Pelly Crossing, but at what cost?
