UPDATE: Ice Harvest 440 snowmobile races canceled

The Ice Harvest 440 Snowmobile Races set to take place this Saturday, Feb. 23 on Little Detroit Lake have been canceled.

"Unfortunately, due to Mother Nature and lake flooding, we are forced to cancel this weekend’s race event," said organizer Jeff Jasperson on Tuesday afternoon. "Our track crews worked all morning on different areas of the lake and found flooding and slush after moving snow.

"We thought we would be ok following this past week’s Ultra Snowmobile Club and Polar Fest activities," he continued, "but that wasn’t the case and ultimately, this year’s snow volume and weight made it impossible to produce a track needed to host the event."
