The Community Loppet welcomes skiers of all types (30km or 10km, skate or classic) and abilities, and is a celebration of community, skiing and the history of trails in the Methow Valley. The un-timed 10K Loppet is free and open to all! Linger at festive AID stations along the trail, with fireside food and community. Post-ski celebration for the whole family at the Red Barn with The Paperboys! Get your tickets early, as this show will sell out.
