2012 Sheep Mountain 150 Sled Dog Race Cancelled

12/10/12 | Zack Steer, Race Director Sheep Mountain 150 | info@sheepmountain.com

Sheep Mountain 150 Sled Dog Race Cancelled

It is with regret that the organizing committee for the Sheep Mountain 150 Sled Dog Race announces that the 2012 race will be cancelled due to insufficient snow. At this time there is not enough snow to safely allow passage of racing sled dog teams. The snowfall that arrived in Southcentral Alaska over the past weekend left less than 1 inch of new snow in the Sheep Mountain area. With only minor snow predicted in the coming week, the decision was made to cancel so that the mushers and race volunteers would have time to make alternate plans.

This is the third time in 9 years of running that the race has been cancelled due to lack of snow, the others being 2007 and 2009.

Race director Zack Steer states, It is unfortunate that mother nature has not cooperated this year. We had a great group of volunteers lined up to put on the race and the local Glacier View community really looks forward to seeing this event happen. There were 60 teams ready to race. Veteran mushers use this race to see how their teams are doing mid-season and rookies use the race to gain experience and possibly qualify for Iditarod. Its just a really fun event and I hate to have to cancel it, but there really was no other choice. Im looking into re-scheduling for this spring, possibly after Iditarod in March or April.

For more information please contact Zack Steer at the numbers below.
