Stifel Loppet Cup Receives Positive Snow Control

The Stifel Loppet Cup is a go! On Friday, Feb. 2, the International Ski & Snowboard Federation (FIS) officially gave the green light to the local organizing committee during the scheduled snow control meetings, giving the go-ahead for Minneapolis' Wirth Park to host the first World Cup in the United States in more than 23 years.  

Due to low snow conditions and unseasonably warm temperatures, the snow at the Wirth Park trailhead is low, however, due to the efforts of the Loppet Foundation community and the local organizers, enough snow was maintained and harvested and systems are in place to successfully host the race.

Over Presidents Day weekend, Feb. 17-19, Minneapolis, Minnesota will welcome the best cross country skiers in the world, including the Stifel U.S. Cross Country Ski Team, to Wirth Park for two races: a sprint and a distance 10k.

More information can be found on the official Stifel Loppet Cup website.
