Alberta Loppet Series

2015 Alberta Loppet Series – Enhancing Awareness and Participation

Cross Country Alberta offers a robust slate of loppet events which provide the opportunity for people of all ages and abilities to participate in and enjoy cross country skiing.

CCA wishes to prompt wider provincial participation at scheduled regional loppet events, encourage camaraderie among participants through friendly competition, promote cross country skiing as an accessible sport for all ages and abilities, and capitalize on existing loppets and organizational work.

At the completion of each loppet the organizer will submit a registered participant list to the CCA office. At the end of the ski season qualifying loppet series skiers will be entered in to a draw for prizes.

Prize structure for level of participation:

  • Complete 3 events – 1 entry for draw prize
  • Complete 5 events – 2 entries for draw prize
  • Complete 7 events – 3 entries for draw prize
