      The lake courses have not survived the warm weather, and the Loppet is now planning to run Saturday and Sunday's ski races at Theodore Wirth on the snowmaking loop. The exact format, times, distance and lap counts, has not yet been announced.
      - Bruce Adelsman
    • Jan 26 update:
      While conditions on the lakes looked pretty good Monday morning, the temperatures soared in the afternoon and aren't looking great for the next couple of days, making hopes of a lake course race seem dim. Loppet officials are planning to make an official announcement on the weekend event plans around noon Tuesday.
      - Bruce Adelsman
    • Jan 26 update:
      Loppet organizers are working hard on preparing a lake course for the weekend races (skier may remember the original Loppet was held on crushed ice...). Please refrain from skiing or using the trails being groomed on Lake Calhoun and Lake of the Isles, especially in the warm weather. They have shoveling parties scheduled for tonight (Monday). Get the full details on the course plans in their latest update.
      - Bruce Adelsman
    • Jan 25 update:
      Race organizers are now considering two options for the races: lake or the snowmaking loop. They acknowledge the warm weather arriving for the first part of the week may impact the lake option, and will reassess the situation later this week. Read the latest course update for more details.
      - Bruce Adelsman
    • Jan 22 update:
      The Loppet is looking at a couple of course options, including a combination of the snowmaking loop and then direct path to the chain of lakes, as well as a lakes only race. More details in their latest update.
