In 2008 Bearskin Lodge became one of the sponsors of the Hoigaard’s Challenge, three races that are “The ultimate test of Minnesota-ness:” The City of Lakes Ski Loppet, the Tri-Loppet, and the Trail Loppet. This weekend the Ski Loppet is being held in Minneapolis and, as has been the case for the past two years, Bearskin will be there. (See http://bearskin.wordpress.com/2008/02/04/city-of-lakes-loppet-or-2-days-in-a-big-plastic-tent/ to read about our first City of Lakes experience.)
This weekend Bearskin will once again have a info table in the big plastic tent on Lagoon and Hennepin Avenues for Year #3 as a City of Lakes Loppet sponsor. Quinn and Kate will be at the booth this year, offering an ample supply of Loppet discount coupons, Wilderness Pursuit race entry forms, and general Bearskin Lodge winter and summer info. We’re hoping our Bearskin guests will stop in and say “hi.” We’d love to visit with you!
