Another GREAT Loppet!

The wind was wicked but our skiers and volunteers toughed it out on superb snow conditions!

Over 300 skiers battled snow squall road conditions to participate in the 2019 Muskoka Loppet.  With Arrowhead’s new Pavillion, and Visitor Centre, they had ample opportunity to escape the cold.  For the first time ever, everyone could enjoy their hot lunch indoors!
