LAST CALL TO REGISTER FOR MASTERS WORLD CUP 2018


Registration window closes Saturday, January 6 at midnight

Minneapolis, MN – As we close in on 2017, we are also shortly closing in on the last week to register for the 2018 Masters World Cup. Held in Minneapolis, MN this international ski championship is being hosted in a major metropolitan city for the first time ever.

Held in Klosters in 2017 and headed to Norway in 2019, this is the first time the Masters World Cup is being held in the United States in a decade. Snowmakers at Theodore Wirth Park in Minneapolis have been working day and night for over a month to build out one of the longest manmade trail systems in North America.

“Every investment we’ve made in snowmaking infrastructure over the last several years has brought us to this point. With the resilience of manmade snow plus the cold temps we’ve been getting, Minneapolis is more than ready to host this competition,” said Mike Erickson of the Loppet Foundation.

Between snowmaking and the natural snowfall we’ve been getting, the Loppet Foundation’s trails crew have now opened almost all of trails in Theodore Wirth Park. They are now looking forward to hitting their goal of 17 kilometers by the end of next week.
