Loppet Nordic Racing

Nordic Ski Training in the Minneapolis Area

Loppet Nordic Racing is the cross-country ski racing program wing of the Loppet Foundation. Loppet Nordic Racing (LNR) was created in the spring of 2012 when two of the Twin Cities largest and most successful ski racing clubs, Minnesota Valley Ski Club and Go! Training were brought into the Loppet Foundation fold by their respective head coaches, Reid Lutter and Piotr Bednarski. Piotr Bednarski is the Head Coach of LNR, with Reid Lutter as the Development Director of LNR.

Our mission is to promote cross country skiing in the Twin Cities and to help athletes of all ages chase their dreams in cross country ski racing.
Ultimately, we have two main goals:

  1. help athletes of all ages improve their xc skiing, whatever their ability
  2. help athletes achieve excellence in xc skiing at a national and international level

LNR offers xc ski racing programs for all ages: TRAIL KIDS (7-14), Juniors (14-18) and Adults.
