Loppets

Here is a partial list of loppets and races. Click on the links for more information. For a more complete listing, see the events schedule at Nordiq Alberta.

A loppet is meaningful to participants in different ways. For some it’s intense competition, for others it’s a relaxing way to spend a day outside, taking in the pristine beauty of the countryside or wilderness, and enjoying the homegrown entertainment and great food and drink at the rest stops along the trail.

  1. Hi Bob,
    The Lake Louise Loppet is not cancelled of at least not completely. It is happening in a virtual edition this year. Registration is open on Calgary Ski Club page.

  2. It appears that the 2021 Cookie Race has been moved from PLPP to the Nordic Centre.

  3. Hi Bob,

    Cross Country Alberta changed its name to Nordic Alberta. The link with loppets has changed accordingly to https://nordiqalberta.ca/races/race-calendar/

  6. Thanks, Ron. That was a leftover from last winter. I’ve corrected it.
