Commentary by the Sled Dog Tourist

Fort St. James, British Columbia

Caledonia Classic

2006 Race Results

Fort St. James Chamber of Commerce

Fort Saint James is a small town in the northern caribou of central British Columbia. You access the town through Vanderhoof via Prince George or through Mackenzie or Bear Lake. This is a forestry industrial town that shows its hospitality in every way possible. The weather in March was broken clouds, at minus 5 degree Celsius.Fort St. James British Columbia

The town sits at the southern end of fabulous Stuart Lake, known for its fishing, boating and scenery. The mountains around provide superior racing trails groomed by the local snowmobile club. The sleddog racing club is a member of the local snowmobile club so the synergy is wonderful.

The race is a few years old and provides 4, 6 and 10 dog sprints. The premier race is a stage race that sprints 60, 40 and 50 miles in three heats, one on each of 3 successive days. Beware this is not a long distance trot but a fast sprint over two wonderful hilly courses and one 50 mile heat up the speedy lake trail. The only trail obstacle is the odd moose but the snowmobile club keeps those guys and gals off the course.

The race is on for next year with the town in full cooperation and enthusiasm. The purse is good and the organization excellent. The race contact is Craig Houghton, choughton@mail.sd91.bc.ca

This is a race everyone should attend for great racing, wonderful camaraderie and spectacular scenery.

All for now, look for your next installment of Traveling with Harry here at Sled Dog Central.
