For the Lake Louise to Banff loppet, there is a changing of the guard this winter, but the race goes on. This announcement was posted on the loppet website:
“Hello Loppet enthusiasts!
We are excited to inform you that the LL to Banff Loppet and relay will be hosted on Sunday, January 19, 2020. Same course, same format. Heidi Widmer, 28 years old and born and raised in Banff, is a former member of the Canadian and Swiss cross-country national ski teams and couldn’t stand to see the loppet tradition end. Please stay tuned as a green Heidi and an experienced volunteer team work together to keep the experience alive. “
I’ve updated my Loppet Page which lists the races and dates. A few dates are still to be determined.
