ST. PAUL, Minn. - A lack of snow has forced the cancellation of the St. Paul Winter Carnival Sled Dog Races.

The races on Bald Eagle Lake were scheduled for Jan. 26. Race organizers pushed back to the weekend of Feb. 2-3.

Despite about 3 inches of new snow, there still isn't enough snow to prepare an adequate and safe trail, organizers said. 

The last sled dog races during the annual Winter Carnival was in 1994.
