Loppet Foundation


Saturday, February 1st. 4 pm
The Trailhead, 1221 Theodore Wirth Parkway

A wonderful introductory event for kids new to skiing. In the Minne-Loppet, everyone’s a winner! All participants will receive a medal, a cookie and hot chocolate upon crossing the finish line!


The Minnesota Youth Ski League (MYSL) 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.


The Minnesota Youth Ski League trailer will be on site to provide equipment.  Bring your own if you can as supplies are limited.

Stay tuned to our Trail Conditions page to be the first to learn if conditions-based event adjustments must be made.
