I'm not sure if this is a first, but it sure is unusual.

The legendary Iditarod dog sled race needed a little help this year.

They call it the Last Great Race on Earth.

Dog sleds and drivers braving the elements between Anchorage and Nome in Alaska.

Except this year, they didn't have enough snow.

So they had to load it on some trains in Fairbanks and ship it in.

Right. Shipping snow from one part of Alaska to another...
