Gist’s Next Generation Loppet is designed to inspire the next generation of Loppet skiers by providing all the fun and excitement of the longer Loppet ski events in shorter distances perfect for youth or junior skiers newer to the sport.

Gist’s Next Generation Loppet skiers will be able to choose from 3K, 2K, and 1K distances. Both distances are freestyle technique, meaning you can classic or skate ski the course.

The Open Loppet 5K is also a good option for skiers of any age looking for more of a challenge through a further distance and added competition.
