If weather patterns do not change quickly, the races will have to be cancelled this year. Rain and up to 1.5 inches of snow is predicted at Deer Mountain this Wednesday night and Thursday. Hotter weather and more rain is predicted thereafter.

Races POSTPONED one month due to lack of snow. New race dates are MARCH 8-9

Due to a lack of snow and a grim outlook for storms coming in between now and our original race date of February 8-9,  the Siskiyou Sled Dog Races are being postponed until March 8-9. Stand by for weather updates. Pray for a series of cold wet storms.

Kids Rides Postponed – Lack of snow. Race location also currently lacking snow.

Free Kids Rides are being postponed until we get snow. Possibly kids rides will occur after the February races.
