Registration webpage for Lake Louise Loppet 2017
This is the oldest continuous mass-participation XC ski race in Western Canada.
We have only had to cancel the event once - due to bitter cold in 2014.
Early Bird Registration closes Tuesday evening 28 February.
Once again we have near-record snowfall of over 1 metre settled snow beside the trail. Lake Louise is, as always, "The Snow-Belt of Alberta"
Have fun on a Traditional Loppet on narrower,more intimate ski trails that twist and turn on hilly terrain through the forest.
With cold temperatures forecast for early this week to help freeze any slush on the Lake and moderating temperatures for the Loppet weekend, we should have a great event.
The Calgary Ski Club continues its decades of work with Lake Louise, Yoho and Kootenay National Parks to improve the XC ski experience all season long, not just for the Loppet
The snow is GREAT and the trails are all packed and trackset for both classic and ski-skating technique.

The CSC has been advised of their next Casino dates - Monday, February 20th, 2017 and Tuesday, February 21st 2017 and it will be held at the Elbow River Casino, as it was last year.
This is the Club's biggest fundraiser - and ensures we can offer our Jackrabbits program at a discounted price. These funds also allow us to host events like the Lake Louise Loppet and to set track at Shaganappi for free cross country skiing.
This is an excellent opportunity to volunteer to earn CSC points - or to clear the Jackrabbit volunteer commitment for the 2016-17 season.
We are expected to provide 36 volunteers to work the day and night shifts to ensure we receive our full funds compensation for the event.
A volunteer may work more that one shift but must work in the same scheduled position.
Please refer to the casino-volunteer-schedule-2017 to determine what position and time slot you are able to volunteer for - then -
Please complete the casino-volunteer-registration-form_csc_2017 and forward it to M. Staples at email@example.com
Volunteer applications for General Manager, Banker, Cashier & Count Room Supervisor need to be submitted to the AGLC by December 19th, 2016 so if you are interested in those positions act now!
We need all your help to make this another successful fundraiser for the CSC!
