Saturday, March 5th 2022

UPDATE: December 29, 2021

Registration will be delayed until February 1st to allow assessment of the most current Covid 19 situation. In the meantime, enjoy the fabulous skiing conditions at Kamview Nordic Centre, Kakabeka Falls Provincial Park, Sleeping Giant Provincial Park, Lappe Nordic Centre and all the other great skiing locations in Northwestern Ontario.

Thunder Bay District Health Unit guidelines and Ontario Parks policies will ultimately determine the Loppet's status. 



The Sleeping Giant Loppet is a mass participation ski festival that offers fun for the whole family and challenges competitive athletes. The Loppet takes place in the beautiful wilderness setting of Sleeping Giant Provincial Park. It features multiple events with distances for skiers of all levels and abilities. Our 8km Mini-Loppet is perfect for families, children and rookies. If you're ready to increase your distance or work on your speed, then the rolling 20km Marie Louise Lake loop is for you. The popular 35km Tour is a relaxed event that takes in the scenic vistas and challenging terrain of the storied Burma Trail. For the ultimate challenge, register for the Loppet's flagship event, the 50km Classic, Skate or Skiathlon distance. The 50km is perfect for elite skiers vying for one of our generous prize packages or citzen racers looking for a PB. Mark Saturday, March 6th, 2021 on your calendar and we'll see you at the start of the 44th annual Sleeping Giant Loppet!
