Event organizers of a dog sled race planned for this weekend have changed the location of the competition.
The first Silverton Flying Sled Dog Races were originally planned to be held on the north end of Silverton, on County Road 2, which follows the upper Animas River.
Late Sunday, event organizers posted on the group’s Facebook page the race will now be held at Molas Lake Park, a few miles south of Silverton.
“Snow conditions are excellent with 3 feet of snow base and fun trail systems groomed for the past couple of weeks,” the group posted.
Events planned around the race will still occur all weekend in Silverton.
