Sled Race... WITH NO SNOW?
Naked Ground Sledding
In Nome, Alaska on January 27th, they hit a record of 51 degrees! 40 degrees above the average Alaskan temp. The mushers, the sporting dogs were scared and confused about the strange weather. But back to the tempurature... that'd mean the snow melted, right? Exactly. So how were they supposed to carry on with the race?
They had to re-route the race to a "snowier" trail. You wouldn't think it was that bad but just a reminder, the racers have been practicing for a long time on the melted route
