Copper Basin 300 set to run despite frigid temperatures

The weather likely won’t stop the 20th running of the Copper Basin 300 Sled Dog race. The season’s first big mid-distance event is scheduled to get underway tomorrow at Lake Louise. Temperatures along the race trail have been as cold as 50 below zero. Organizers met last night to talk about contingencies if things don’t warm up, and race board president Marty Karjala says one way or the other, the race will be run.
