Sleeping Giant Loppet Registration

The Sleeping Giant Loppet will not be held in 2021. Ontario regulations currently prohibit events of any size in provincial parks and this situation is not expected to change prior to the Loppet date. Naturally the organizing committee, and we know all skiers, will be disappointed by this cancellation. However, we accept that missing the Loppet for one year is a small sacrifice in an effort to limit the spread of the virus.

It is our understanding that ski trail grooming will continue in Sleeping Giant this winter and rental cabins will be available. We encourage all skiers who live in the Thunder Bay area to take advantage of the fantastic skiing in the park. As circumstances may change, please consult the Ontario Parks Ski Report before finalizing your plans to ski at Sleeping Giant. And don’t forget, the park is also a great place to snowshoe.

See you on Saturday, March 5th 2022.

Participants may not change their event during the Loppet by moving either up or down a distance.   Doing so will result in disqualification. Changes in distance may be made up to 30 minutes before the start of the event.  Report to the timing trailer close to the start line. The difference in fees will be charged when a request is made to move to an event with a higher fee.  No refund will be provided when a change request is made to move to an event with a lower fee.
