Good news, bad news.

Mother Nature has really been cranky this year, and Lake Tahoe is having the worst winter in recorded history. Right now, there is zero snow there, and temperatures are in the 50s. To their credit, the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Lake Tahoe has been moving snow and trying to make snow and pull rabbits out of their hat, but even their superpowers have limits.

Therefore, round five of the 2018 AMA National Snow Bike Series at Lake Tahoe is not going to happen this coming Saturday. This is the first time in the 10-year history of running snow bike races that we have had to shut down an event due to lack of snow.

But fear not: The Lake Tahoe race is going to happen on Saturday, March 24! The Cascades haven’t been getting much snow either, so this year we are canceling the March 24 Diamond Lake, Oregon, round, and instead we will finish up the season on March 24 at Lake Tahoe. With more time to prepare and cooler temperatures, Tahoe will be awesome, even in a crappy winter.

More good news!

We are fine on snow for the race in Kalispell, Montana, on February 24, and the March 11 event in West Yellowstone is also in fine shape when it comes to snow. So the rest of the season looks like this:
Round 5, February 24: Kalispell, Montana
Round 6, March 11: West Yellowstone, Montana
Round 7, March 24: Lake Tahoe, Nevada

Again, round eight, which was going to be held at Diamond Lake, Oregon, is not going to happen this year due to lack of snow and the inability to make any. Therefore, six of a rider’s best seven rides will count toward AMA National titles.
