Help The Loppet Foundation celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the City of Lakes Loppet Winter Festival this year! Starting with a point-to-point ski race in 2003, the event has now grown to a full weekend of activities for all ages and abilities.
You can be part of the history by participating in one of their cross-country ski, fat-tire bike, snowshoe, and skijor races/tours – in addition to their other unique events, like the new Friday Loppet Feed, the Ski-Orienteering Loppet, and the world’s largest winter Kubb Tournament.
