Hello Winter-Lovers,

DPSAY is happy to announce another “Carbon Hill Race Day”, which will take place on Sunday, January 15th, 2017 at the Lorne Mountain Community Centre on KM 1 of the Annie Lake Road.

“The Carbon Hill Race Day” will be part of our DPSAY Twister Race series again.

     (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)

The 30mile sled/skijor race, will follow either the scenic Alligator Lake trail loop (app. 36 miles) or the traditional 30-mile Annie Lake loop.

Both trails have been used in the past and are equally appreciated by participants. Trail and snow conditions will determine which trail will be used on January 15th.
