A loppet is a "community fun race" open to all ages and abilities.  Calgary Ski Club's annual Lake Louise Loppet is the longest running in Western Canada.  It is held every year in Lake Louise on the first Sunday in March. We encourage you, your family and friends to come out and participate in this extraordinary event and enjoy the breathtaking scenery of Lake Louise while cross country skiing.

UPDATE: 

The 48th Lake Louise Loppet went off without a hitch on Sunday March 1st, 2020 after some last minute, minor revisions were made to the course due to some changes made by Parks Canada.  We hope you enjoyed the event and look forward to seeing you next year.  Many thanks to our fantastic event coordinators Helen, Alasdair and all our hardworking and enthusiastic volunteers.
