"The racers are getting ready and we’re getting ready. Bleachers are going up. The one thing we’re lacking as of today is snow," Gene Shaw of Visit Duluth, one of the event organizers said.
With above average temperatures it has been tough getting snow and getting it to stick. However, organizers said this predicament is nothing new.
Last year, weather cooperated and snow was made well in advance, Mattson said. The year before that Spirit Mountain was able to make all the snow for the Snocross in 48 hours.
Organizers said they’ll do whatever they can to get the race off to a good start, including pulling out 24 snow guns to make snow.
