Riding Mountain Loppet CANCELLED

DUE TO UNSAFE SKI CONDITIONS THE ANNUAL RIDING MOUNTAIN LOPPET HAS BEEN CANCELLED.

With the warm weather that we have experienced over the past few weeks, the Wasagaming Campground ski courses have become too hard packed and icy for our machines to rejuvenate into a safe ski area. We apologize for the late announcement, but with the lack of snow in our forecast and dangerous downhill sections, the decision has been made to cancel the annual loppet as oppose to risking serious injuries to our participants.

We will be giving a full refund to those that have already paid for the event and for those still coming out to Riding Mountain for the March 4 and 5 weekend, we will be offering an assortment of family friendly activities at the Friends Learning Centre.

thanks for your understanding.
