ST. PAUL (AP) — A lack of snow has forced postponement of the St. Paul Winter Carnival Sled Dog Races.

The races on Bald Eagle Lake were scheduled for Jan. 26. But race organizers say the event has been pushed back to the weekend of Feb. 2-3.

Sally O’Sullivan Bair of the North Star Sled Dog Club says there is currently not enough snow cover to hold the races.

Organizers hope the region gets enough snow to hold the races. A final decision on the races will be made Jan. 27.

The sled dog races were absent from the annual Winter Carnival since the early 1990s, then were rescheduled and canceled in 2012.
