Reino Keski-Salmi Loppet

Our 35th Annual Loppet!

Reino Keski-Salmi Loppet

We have a slightly new format this year!  Our newly expanded chalet affords us the opportunity to realise more of the changes we’ve been working towards; chief amongst them, a new start time!  Start gun for competitive skiers (categories B thru H) will be at 10 am sharp.   Succeeding start times follow as usual in 5 minute intervals.  Race routes remain the same as last year with hot lunch being served at the finish.  For the youngest skiers (A1/A2) the awards ceremony will take place in the chalet at 11:30 am.

At the Community Centre, the hot tub, sauna, and pool will be open for all skiers and volunteers from 2-4 pm.  Appy Hour is moved to 4:30 and the Awards Ceremony to 5:30 (except A1/A2), followed by the opportunity to mingle with friends and family over a casual supper of pizza and beverages (self-purchased).

A critical change to take note of; all registrations must be received by midnight, Thursday, January 17th.   No in-person registration at bib pick-up this year.

Race bibs can be picked up at the Community Centre on Friday, January 18th between 4 and 7 pm or in the chalet Saturday morning between 8:30 and 9:30 am.

A special 35th anniversary commemorative mug will be available for purchase ($30) both Friday evening and on Saturday at Appy Hour.

We are excited to host our  35th Reino Keski-Salmi Loppet  and hope you will join us on Saturday January 19, 2019.
