Upcoming Loppet Sport Programming

Loppet Sport programming is under way with Winter 2020 registration

You may have noticed those white flakes falling from the sky and accumulating on the ground across the Twin Cities today, indicating that winter is even closer than you may have realized. 

In the spirit of changing seasons, we have compiled a list of all our winter training opportunities available to you through our many Loppet Sport programs, which will help keep you outside and active all winter long. We are so excited for the snow and all the fun exercise opportunities that come with it! Buy your ski trail pass now and sign up for one of our training programs or events this winter.

Due to COVID-19, our training programs have been filling much quicker than usual, so please plan accordingly. COVID-19 safety updates will continue to be made on our website.
