Please note that we have had to adjust the wave starts to be 20 minutes apart instead of 30 minutes in order to avoid conflicts with skiers coming through the stadium as waves are departing. The first wave (50 km event) still leaves at 10:00 a.m. Please check the Race Day Schedule for details.

This year (February, 2017 loppet), the Sigge’s Payak perk for volunteers and racers is $20 to spend at Sigge’s, our favorite nordic store. The race organizers (CVXC) will provide Sigge’s with the name of all racers in the 15, 30, and 50 K events, and of all our fabulous volunteers. You can spend that $20 on goods and services at the store between February 26 and September 30, 2017. Continue reading
The course for the Payak Mini has changed from a 5 k loop to 2 loops of the 2.5 k sit ski course! This will loop through the stadium, allowing those who are fatigued to finish rather than continue!

We’ve updated our courses to ease the amount of climb – no more big hill out of the stadium. So you can do the 50 km now, no excuses! Click here to check out the new routes.
Share your love of the Sigge’s Payak and earn cold hard cash to spend on ski kit! It’s easy! First, register yourself in the loppet. Then refer a friend (someone who does not live in your household) and ensure your friend uses your name when registering (they answer the question “how did you hear about the loppet”). On race day, we will pay you $10 in Sigge’s Bucks. You can refer up to three friends. Collect your Sigge’s Bucks in the race office after the loppet. Go shopping!
