The Loppet is back and bigger than ever


The annual City of Lakes Loppet Ski Festival is never quite the same thing twice.

That isn’t just because of the weather, the ultimate X factor for an event that depends on snow and freezing temperatures in early February, both of which have proven remarkably inconsistent over the past 11 years.
