The Apple Loppet is set for Sunday Jan 13th! Don’t let that stop you from coming up for a recreational ski or snowshoe The Telemark Nordic Centre is open for public skiing and snowshoeing on Loppet day. To avoid the crowds and have the best skiing available it would be best to plan your ski for mid-day.
The kids races start at 9:30am and the main Loppet starts at 10:10am. The Classic leg of the Loppet – on Telemark Trail – is first to go and most racers will be off that trail by 11:15am. The skate leg of the Loppet – mainly on Fern Trail – is last so it will be better to ski in the afternoon. Most of the competitors will be finished and things will be winding down by about 12:30 with the Loppet course completely cleared by 1:30. Full Schedule
Snowshoers will need to be extra careful crossing the ski trails when racers are coming through.
Saturday was a beautiful and busy day up here. We were in the sunshine above the valley cloud with temperatures hovering just around zero Celsius. Should be more of the same on Sunday and will make for another great day at Telemark for the Loppet and for regular skiing and snowshoeing.
