Sheep Mountain 150

In case anyone was wondering why we hadn't given team line-ups or updates on the Sheep Mountain 150, the race was cancelled earlier this week due to a lack of snow.

Here's the latest post from Zack Steer, the Race Director: "This last storm was too little, too late to save the Sheep Mountain 150 sled dog race. The 2012 race is cancelled, sorry to say. We needed at least a foot of snow and only picked up a couple of inches. Trails are fine for biking and skiing, but would not hold up for the safe travels of 60 dog teams. Last Fall's wet weather saturated the ground with water. This winter we have seen much more glaciation and ice than normal along the creeks and valleys."

So, our next scheduled race is the Two Rivers Solstice 100 on December 22 - we'll update you about teams later next week.
