2022 Muskoka Loppet  Cancelled

In light of the recent and widespread surge in Covid-19 cases, and after much deliberation, we have decided to cancel the Muskoka Loppet for 2022.  We made this decision out of concern for the safety of our skiers, volunteers, and for the staff at Arrowhead Provincial Park. 

While it’s true that the Loppet would technically be allowed under current public health guidelines, the sheer size of the event, and the number of people involved, including skiers, volunteers and Park staff, makes it almost impossible to guarantee everyone’s safety.  In addition, current guidelines prevent us from using indoor spaces to warm up, and from serving food, both of which are important to offering a safe and enjoyable experience for all. 

We regret having to cancel this event, but we encourage everyone to get out and ski in a safe manner.

The Huntsville Doppler has posted a great article covering the 2020 Muskoka Loppet.

Thanks to ALL those volunteers who helped organize, set up, time, marshall, do food, and clean up.  Without volunteers it wouldn’t happen!

Thank you also to the staff at Arrowhead Provincial Park not only with the grooming but helping to set up, take down, manage and be wonderful hosts.

 

The Muskoka Loppet is a classic event.  No skating is permitted!  Participants have the choice of 5, 15 or 30 km  (approximate) distances.  Lunch is included in the registration fee.  It’s an incredible day for recreational skiers and racers alike!
