Part of the City of Lakes Loppet Winter Festival
Saturday, January 30: 8:30am
The Trailhead, 1221 Theodore Wirth Parkway
If you want an adventure that mixes the great outdoors with a bit of a scavenger hunt, give this unique event a go. Hosted by the Minnesota Orienteering Club (MNOC.org), the Ski-Orienteering Loppet is a timed event in which participants navigate on skis using map and compass to find checkpoints located throughout Wirth Park.
Orienteering is an activity that everyone in the family can enjoy, regardless of age or experience. All are welcome from experienced and competitive orienteers who fly through the woods to beginners and non-competitive orienteers who want to follow the trails and enjoy the park at a more leisurely pace.
The Ski-O usually has two different courses available to fit your experience and fitness, Medium/Long (7-9k) and Short (4-5k).
Participants will receive information on start location/details directly from MNOC.
