Jan 25th, 2009 Nakkertok Nordic is hosting the annual Nakkerloppet and Mini-Nakkerloppet

Join us January 25th for the Nakkerloppet, the regionís premier back-country loppet. Skiers follow a continuous 25km single track trail that joins Nakkertok North to Nakkertok South through some of the regionís best and most exciting trails! This loppet is not for beginner skiers, however, capable skiers under 15 are encouraged to come as long as they are accompanied by an adult.

For a taste of what else Nakkertok Nordic provides, come ski the 12.5km Mini-Nakkerloppet, on trails all accessible from Nakkertok South. These trails are regularly groomed to perfection by Dirk Van Wyjk, Chief of Grooming for the 2010 Olympics. Younger skiers are most welcome, as long as they are accompanied by an adult.

Both loppets are untimed. For the Nakkerloppet, we shuttle you from Nakkertok South to Nakkertok North where you begin your journey.

Registration includes a beverage and snack when you check out. This is a garbage-reduced event, we ask that you bring your own mug and napkin, and we will keep them for you while you ski.

For more information, please go to http://english.nakkertok.ca/Home/events/nakkerloppet.

Registration is only online at www.zone4.ca. Registration closes Jan 23 at 6pm.
