50 years of the Inuvik loppet

 

The 50th anniversary Top of the World Loppet will take place in Inuvik April 7-8. (It’s true that this is the same weekend as our Yellowknife loppet, but if you want to make this big journey you are hereby absolved of guilt and encouraged to do so.)

April 7 will be free technique, with 100 m, 300 metre, 1.3 km, 5 km and 15 km distances, followed by a catered feast, awards and family dance. Sunday will feature classic technique on the same distances. Ski rentals are available and volunteers are needed.

Find more info: inuvikskiclub.ca or email inuvikskiclub@gmail.com.

And keep your eyes peeled for airfare/accommodation packages.

Trail clearing… volunteers wanted!

Want the best ski trails grooming can provide? Help make them!

September is time for the annual fall trail-brushing blitz. Over the next month, all trails need to be cleared so that grooming can begin when the snow flies.

Two-person trail-brushing crews work half day shifts, and we can accommodate two shifts at a time. If you’ve done it before you know the drill; if not, orientation is provided.

Many hands make light work. If you have half a day to spare, please contact Chris Hotson by email at christopherhotson@yahoo.ca or by text at 867-445-3396.
