Description

The Pre-Loppet event includes both ski races and fat-tire bike events. Pending good snow conditions with typical Loppet optimism and can-do-ism, the 2023 Pre-Loppet long course ski and fat bike (approx 15K-18K) will utilize the natural snow trails in Theodore Wirth Park between the Trailhead and Glenwood Rd (e.g Bridge, Skyline, Tornado, JD Rivers, Wirth Lake and Jar Hill) and finish on the world class snowmaking trails plus the scenic natural snow Judy trail near the Trailhead.

Starting and finishing at the Trailhead will be more ski events including The Pre-Loppet 5K, 3K, 1K, and Sit Ski options of 1K and 500 meters!

The Pre-Loppet has always been the key tune-up event for the City of Lakes Loppet Winter Festival.
