I like the Petersville area, lots of "groomed" trails :) and many places to explore without them.

impassible' trail conditions, bitter cold force cancellation of Copper Basin 300

FAIRBANKS - The Copper Basin 300 was canceled Sunday morning after a section of trail was deemed impassible.

A statement by race marshal Greg Parvin said the trail between Meier's Lake and Sourdough had unusually deep snow conditions, with high winds and bitter cold. Two Rivers musher Allen Moore, who was one of the race leaders, told his handlers that the trail got bad about 12 miles out of Meiers Lake and that even the snowmachines were getting stuck.

Meier's Lake is about 75 miles into the race route. Temperatures were consistently 45 to 50 below zero and "the decision was made in the interest of the dogs, mushers and race staff," according to a statement the CB300 posted on its Facebook page.

Mushers, handlers and race officials returned to Meier's Lake Roadhouse on Sunday morning, where the decision was made to cancel the race.

The Copper Basin 300 bills itself as "the toughest 300 miles in sled dog racing." The trail begins at Chistochina and does a loop to Paxson in the Alaska Range, south to Meier's Lake, Sourdough, Lake Louise and Glennallen. It is a qualifier for the Iditarod and Yukon Quest.
