One race ends, and another begins. I haven’t spoken to the organizers of the Lake Louise to Banff Loppet but from my observations it has been an unmitigated success. Over 280 participants at last count, and probably double that doing it unofficially.
Just like many other events and fundraisers, the Kicking Horse Ski Club will be hosting a virtual event this year. In order to mitigate the pandemic, there will be no specific day for the Yoho Challenge for 2021. Participate at your convenience between February 10-24th.
