HOG LOPPET CROSS-COUNTRY TREK - Feb 22-24, 2013
The Leavenworth Ski Club hosts the annual Hog Loppet, a non-competitive 30k Ski Trek from the top of Mission Ridge Ski Area to Blewett Pass. The trek is an exciting challenge for strong intermediate and advanced cross country skiers. While much of the route is groomed there is also a highly entertaining segment of un-groomed excitement. You will be joined by skiers from all age groups using every type of backcountry and cross country ski you can think of. A few even come in costume! Warming stations offer a great opportunity to take a break, gather around the fire, have some sweet snacks and hot chocolate.
Shuttle buses are available for Hog Loppers to transport us to Mission Ridge and return us to Leavenworth at the end of the day. Advanced event and shuttle bus registration is highly recommended.
If you want to cross country but don’t feel like cranking out 30KM in a day – there are dozens of groomed and un-groomed options in and Leavenworth. Rental gear is also available in town.
For those of you who crave the carve – Mission Ridge is available for your downhill desires.
We will be staying at a newly constructed 6,000 sq. ft. home with 7 bedrooms, 7 baths, a full kitchen and hot tub. This beautiful home located on the Wenatchee River is only one mile from downtown Leavenworth which will make it supremely easy to get to our shuttle bus early Saturday morning.
Our first meal of the trip will be Friday night dinner at the house. Check out will be around 11 am on Sunday.
Price: $163 per person includes: lodging and meals (Friday night dinner, continental breakfast and dinner on Saturday & full breakfast on Sunday).
Each participant will need to register for the race and shuttle bus independently. This cost will be the responsibility of each participant and will be in addition to the trip cost above. Ski Buddies will be arranging the housing, food and camaraderie!
