The 37K Classic Ski Loppet is one of the flagship events of the City of Lakes Loppet Winter Festival. This long distance, point-to-point event is a truly unique cross-country skiing experience. The Classic Ski Loppet takes racers over the parkways and through the woods to a grand finish in front of The Trailhead in Theodore Wirth Park.
Skiers of all ages and abilities will be challenged and thrilled by this beautiful urban course. Go for your best time, or simply enjoy this unique ski experience that features an incredible mix of urban skiing and wooded natural trails.
New this year, participants can choose our Open Course Format, where skiers can complete the marked course on their own time (by themselves or with friends) without the crowds, mass starts, or competition structure.
The Classic Ski Loppet is classic/diagonal stride only. For those that prefer skate technique, check out the Skate Ski Loppet on Sunday.
