A three-day sled dog race scheduled to start Thursday has been cancelled due to a lack of snow in the North Country.

“Honestly I’ve never seen a winter this bad since I moved up here and started running sled dogs," said Jaye Foucher, one of the organizers of The Great North Woods Sled Dog Challenge who has lived in the North Country for 13 years.

"I had hoped that the winter would turn around," she said.

The event was scheduled to start in Bretton Woods and then move to Colebrook, Pittsburg and Milan.
