An event celebrating the best of Minnesota, held in the U.S. for the first time since 2001.
The FIS Cross-Country World Cup presented by Coop is the preeminent cross-country skiing world tour. Held each winter between November and March, the fastest skiers in the world come together to compete at these races — including our own hometown (s)hero, Olympic Gold Medalist Jessie Diggins!
“Hosting the World Cup is our chance to show skiers from around the World how Minnesota embraces winter – through sport and through our hospitality. U.S. Ski & Snowboard and The Loppet Foundation are excited to host a world-class competition and share our state with athletes from around the World. We’re equally excited to give ski fans from around the U.S. a chance to see the action up close for the first time in nineteen years! I am so proud to represent Minnesota as one of the first American athletes to win Olympic Gold in cross-country, and now to bring the sport I love to the state I call home.”
Jessie Diggins, Olympic Gold Medalist, native of Afton, MN
