LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW ….. for another “Carbon Hill Race Day” on Sunday, January 17th, 2016 at the Lorne Mountain Community Centre on KM 1 of the Annie Lake Road.

After last year’s success DPSAY will once again host “The Carbon Hill Race Day” as part of our Yukon Brewing Twister Race Series.

We will host 4 races at the event:

1. 30-MILES for skijorers and dog sleds
(8-dogs max for sleds and 4-dogs max for skijorers)

2. 10-MILES for skijorers and dog sleds
(8-dogs max for sleds and 4-dogs max for skijorers)

3. 6- MILES Recreation Class open to multiple disciplines for participants
of 12 years of age and older(ski, kick sled, fat bike, or whatever – 2 dogs
max).

4. 100–yard Kids Dash open to children any age. Parents must help/participate/supervise. (Small sleds and a dog will be provided but you are welcome to bring your own)

 
RACE COURSE:

The 30mile sled/skijor race, (which is actually more like 36 miles) will follow up the incredibly scenic Alligator Lake trail to a turn-around in the alpine meadow and return on the same trail. This is the same trail we used last year, a new trail to the Carbon Hill race, which mushers really liked.

The 6 and 10-mile races will be the same trails that have been used for many past Carbon Hill events.
