The dogs are ready, the spectators are primed, and it looks like there will be enough snow to run the races January 14 and 15 up on Lost Trail Pass.
It’s the Fifth annual Darby Dog Derby Sled Dog Race, which will include two-day races of 20, 15, 7 and 3/4 mile courses, a ski-jor race and pee wee race.
Nicki Arndt, on KLYQ’s Event Show (Fridays 8am to 9am), said that the snow levels are good this year on Gibbons Pass Road #1260, which intersects Lost Trail Pass at the junction of US 93 and Montana 43, at the south end of the Bitterroot Valley.
The location last year was at a lower elevation, and rain dampened the competition. This year, snow is not that plentiful throughout the U.S., which could bring in teams from other areas.
The race is organized and run by the Bitterroot Mushers, in association with Montana Mountain Mushers, a non-profit group which promotes the ethical treatment of sled dogs and multiple use of the winter trails. The Bitterroot Mushers website has more information.
