Great weather, great conditions, and fantastic fellowship made for a great Loppet.

 

The Menihek Nordic Ski Club hosted the 39th Great Labrador Loppet starting in Fermont, Que., and ending at the Whitewolf Snowmobile Club in Labrador City Saturday, March 22.   

Just under 130 participants of all ages chose between snowshoeing 10 kilometres or cross-country skiing 10, 28, or 50 kilometres, either racing against their own best times or casually enjoying the scenery. 

The hardened snow gave skiers a good pace through the rolling hills, where they could take breaks over fires stoked by volunteers until they reached the clubhouse to socialize with other participants.  

For many skiers it was simply a warm-up to the competitive 2014 Canadian Masters cross-country races, which began the next day, on March 22, also hosted by the Menihek Nordic Ski club, where skiers from across Canada compete on the world-class Labrador trails.
