This year the Falcon Ridge Ski Slopes, in partnership with the Falcon Sports Club, will be hosting its first annual Floppet loppet Ski Race on March 3, 2018.
This unique nordic ski race will wind through the wild and majestic woods of the boreal forest that surround the ski hill. The trails are well known for their pristine groomed condition, great scenery, and lots of elevation changes. There will be three race distances for participants to choose from...
- The Minnow: ~7.5km
- The Walleye: ~17.5km
- The Northern Pike: ~35km long
Along the way, participants will have the chance to stop at various festive check-points to indulge in some authentic Whiteshell culture. At the end of the day there will be a large celebration feast, awards ceremony and concert in the chalet by local musical favorites Red Moon Road.
The event is very much geared towards spectators so bring your friends and family! There will be plenty of things for them to do during the whole weekend such as tubing, skating, downhill skiing and snowboarding at the ski hill. The Falcon Beach Ranch will also be providing trail rides throughout the weekend.
Where to stay in Falcon Lake?
There are many great places to stay in Falcon Lake for the Floppet weekend...
- Falcon Trails Resort
- Falcon Beach Ranch
- Just a short 15 minute drive from the ski hill, the Falcon Beach Ranch has 3 gorgeously authentic log cabins perched high on a rocky ridge over-looking the ranch. Did you know that our local, 2-time Olympic biathlete, Megan Imrie, grew up here!!??
