The Yorkton Cross Country Ski Club highly recommends the  Duck Mountain Loppet being held this weekend!

This is one of the best events hosted in Saskatchewan every winter. For those who have never been to a Loppet this is not a "ski race but an organized "ski event" for everyone who loves to ski and socialize.

Here are some of the reasons why you should go!
-Lots of great ski trails with varied terrain for skiers of all levels
-Lots of nice people to chat with along the way
-There are 4 warmup shelters all stocked with snacks and warm drinks to enjoy (so you do not have to carry too much food and drink along with you)
-And a wonderful steak supper to finish off the day!

Attached are some of the details but also go to the links to see the Kamsack Ski Club website or the pdf copy of the registration form for more information. This is a well organized event and the trails at Duck Mountain are great!

Weather conditions predicted for this weekend are in the -5C to -7C range so it should be almost perfect.

You can pick a distance anywhere from 5K, 10K, 15K, 20K, 30K or 45K. There is a distance for everyone to ski!
