Five weeks out from the Ushuaia Loppet and Marchablanca
At a little over a month away, the Club Andino Ushuaia continues its preparations leading up to the opening of the 2018-19 Worldloppet Season. June’s plentiful snowfalls have permitted grooming and projects to commence on the Provincial Cross Country Ski Trail in the Valley of Tierra Mayor.
This year, the 25 KM trail hosts both the Ushuaia Loppet and the Marchablanca on the same day, August 12, 2018. The Ushuaia Loppet consists of two loops in classic technique totaling 50 KMs.
The historical Marchablanca—a Worldloppet Silver event—consists of one 25 KM loop also in classic technique. Additionally, there is a 7,5 KM promotional event.
For kids, the MiniMarchablanca will take place on August 18th, 2018.
Registration is available at www.ushuaialoppet.com
. Already, skiers from fifteen nations have signed up to get their Worldloppet Passports stamped in Tierra del Fuego, at the “end of the world.”
The Ushuaia Loppet is a FIS POINT event. Licensed skiers will accumulate FIS points towards their international ranking.
