A wonderful introductory event for kids new to skiing. In the Minne-Loppet everyone is a winner – all kids receive a medal, cookie and hot chocolate.


The Minnesota Youth Ski League provides ski equipment for use in the Minne-Loppet, though come early as supplies are limited.

There are two different courses – 1 kilometer (green course) or 2 kilometers (blue course). Skiers can choose either course.
