Loppet Masters

Technique and performance is the focus of this 24-week cross-country ski course designed for alumni of the Loppet programs, or those with equivalent experience. With the help of our enthusiastic and experienced coaches, you will set goals and be motivated to improve classic technique and fitness. We will also have a skate ski coach for those who want that option. This is a fun, focused training and touring program in which we will try to ski in various locations—working in longer touring days when the snow is awesome. You'll have coaching support at 2 Loppets this season, which could include the Edmonton Birkebeiner, Huckleberry Loppet or the Lake Louise Loppet.
