Unfortunately the February 9th Echo Loppet is cancelled due to the forecast of sub-zero wind chill temps, high winds (gusts up to 39 mph), and heavy snow. Although the snow is welcome, we are concerned that the forecasted "blizzard-like" conditions may create unsafe driving and ski conditions. For all on-line registrants, we will issue you a refund for your ticket.
