City of Lakes Loppet

There’s no one way to do the Loppet


There’s more than one way to do the City of Lakes Loppet Ski Festival. What Muffy Ritz has planned might be called the hard way.

A cross-country ski coach in Sun Valley, Idaho, Ritz is flying back to her home state to ski the Hoigaard’s Classic Marathon, a 42-kilometer race from Theodore Wirth Park to the Loppet Village on the north shore of Lake Calhoun. Then she’ll wake up the next day to do it all over again in the Loppet Skate Marathon.
