The 32nd Annual Grand County Sled Dog Classic takes place Feb. 19-20 in Granby. This Rocky Mountain Dog Sled Club event is the oldest surviving tradition in Colorado sprint mushing. The course is weaves across the historic Linke family ranch, right in the center of the valley. Wide open, with small rolling hills and not a single tree, it is a great course for spectators to check out the dogs and watch teams of 4, 6 and 8 dogs race to the finish. The Town of Granby has plowed access to the course behind City Market and a parking area at the top of a knoll provides views of almost the entire course. Chile lunches will be provided courtesy of Carlos and Maria’s in Winter Park. Races start at 9 a.m. Saturday and Sunday and will run through the early afternoon both days. One- and two-dog skijoring events will also take place throughout the day.
