Loppet Foundation

Loppet Ski Club


Take your skill and enjoyment of skiing to new heights!

The Loppet Ski Club is a community of lifelong skiers who gather year round to recreate and enjoy the meditations, exhilaration and philosophies of the trails. Loppet Ski Club is designed for the person who is interested in developing as a competent and confident recreational skier. Many who join the club are skiing for the first time, perhaps getting interested through their kids that have started skiing, cyclists and runners that want to keep it going year round or are simply trying to find a way to love winter in Minnesota. Others have been long-time skiers but have never had a lesson or training program.

Regardless of motivations and experience – ALL ARE WELCOME !!!

Every session involves training and self-care tips, quality coaching, skills development, skiing and community.  Coaches will cover clothing and equipment, waxing and event preparation. Loppet Ski club will also include special sessions taught by “celebrity” coaches and special educational lectures.

Come ski with us, we won’t judge you.
