The trails are primed and ready to go.

The 88th Laconia World Championship Sled Dog Derby is set to kick off this weekend in the Lakes Region of NH.

The event was originally scheduled for last weekend...however, there wasn't enough good snow to lay down the 14 1/2 mile track. But after the series of snowstorms in the area over the past week, lack of snow won't be a problem.

Participants will be vying for the event's largest purse ever - over $18,000.
