This year the Falcon Ridge Ski Slopes, in partnership with the Falcon Sports Club, will be hosting its second annual Floppet loppet Ski Race on Sunday, March 3, 2019.
This unique nordic ski race will wind through the wild and majestic woods of the boreal forest that surround the ski hill. The trails are well known for their pristine groomed condition, great scenery, and LOTS of elevation. Participants will have the option to choose either classic or skate technique and from three different race distances...
- The Minnow: ~7.5km
- The Walleye: ~17.5km
- The Northern Pike: ~35km long
Along the way, participants will have the chance to stop at various festive check-points to indulge in some authentic Whiteshell culture. Stay for the weekend and join in on the Floppet Feast and Concert which will be taking place on Saturday night.
The event is very much geared towards spectators so bring your friends and family! There will be plenty of things for them to do during the whole weekend such as tubing, skating, downhill skiing and snowboarding at the ski hill. The Falcon Beach Ranch will also be providing sleigh rides throughout the weekend.
