The Course


In 2017 the Hoppet course led skiers through a loop into Sun Valley, a lap of Langfords Loop and Heathy Spur, a second lap of the Sun Valley loop then a lap of Langfords and the Two Pauls' Track for the full 42km. So, to the relief of many, they only had to ski  up the Paralyzer once this year. The Birkebeiner 21km race competed one lap of Sun Valley and Heathy Spur, and skiers in the 7 km Joey race skied one lap of the Sun Valley loop.


Weather & Snow Conditions


The weather on the day was cold and sunny with little or no wind. The snow cover over the course was good, and the snow was fast, remaining cold and firm well into the afternoon.
