BELLINGHAM, Wash. (AP) - There’s been so little snow in the Cascade Mountains that organizers of the annual Ski to Sea race have been forced to drop two skiing events.

Organizers said Wednesday Whatcom County’s annual relay race from Mount Baker to Bellingham Bay will still go on, just without the cross-country skiing and downhill skiing events.

The Bellingham Herald reports (https://is.gd/SVRM5I ) the race has been reorganized to start with mountain running at Mount Baker Ski Area and finish with mountain biking. In between, the traditional downhill running, road biking, canoeing, cross-country biking and sea kayaking legs will continue.

About 500 eight-person teams are signed up for the May 24 race.
