Arctic Man title race ending after 2018
After 33 years, the popular Arctic Man Race is ending.
It's a unique event for teams of two -- a skier and a snowmachiner. The skier goes down a mountain, is towed by the snowmachine up another incline, and the skier goes down again.
At its busiest, the race drew about 60 teams. But this year, only about a dozen signed up.
Even though 2018 is the last year for the race, organizers say there will be plenty to do at Arctic Man in upcoming years.
"It's a fun weekend if the weather's in our favor, and the snow-riding is in our favor. I mean, I get all kinds of people call back and say, 'Man we had the most fun. We're coming back with more friends,'" said organizer Howie Thies.
Arctic Man starts in a couple of weeks. It runs from April 9 to 15 near Summit Lake, just north of Paxon.
