Due to a lack of snow the Yukon Quest will not finish in Whitehorse,
"The 2006 Yukon Quest will not be finishing in Whitehorse this year, it will be finishing in Dawson," [race marshal Mike McCowan] said in Dawson City. "We will run teams to Pelly as we normally would, [then] we'll turn them around and come back to Dawson to finish here."

It is too bad as the finish can be quite exciting but if one is so inclined they could go up the highway to Dawson City and see the finish. This is a downside of a mild winter.
