Strap on your skis and get ready for the 11th annual Riding Mountain Loppet on Saturday March 4. A Norwegian term for a long-distance cross-country ski race, a “loppet” is for anyone who loves the joy of gliding across the snow, whether for fun or competition. In order to keep the event family friendly, but challenging for competitive skiers, the 2017 Loppet will offer distances ranging from the 2.0 km Chipmunk Challenge, to the 6.0 km Jackrabbit route, to the 11.0 km Cougar circuit, and finally the 22.0 km Wolf endurance course.
