Ski the Luminary Loppet, Sat. Feb. 2. – A Transit to Green Space Outing

Posted by .

Minneapolis’ 11th Annual Cross Country Ski Festival is coming up Feb. 2nd and 3rd!

The Sierra Club will once again be heading there on a transit outing to take in the fabulous Luminary Loppet, a 5 k. loop around Lake of the Isles through a magical wonderland of ice luminarias, bonfires, jugglers, hot drinks and more. Because this is a popular event, the Uptown area becomes very congested, so transit use really makes sense. And besides, you can download a free bus pass to get there and back. So join in the fun!

Here’s how:

  • Register for the Luminary Loppet, Saturday, Feb. 2 on the event website. Register for the 6:30pm start time to be with the SC group. Hurry! cost increases after1/15.
  • Download your bus pass on the loppet website.
  • Meet at 5:10 pm near the Merriam Park Library on Marshall Ave. in St. Paul for the 5:20 #21 bus. The ride takes about 40 minutes, time for people watching, chatting and relaxing. (The bus stop is 1 block west of Fairview on the north side of marshall Ave.)
  • Once we arrive at the Uptown station, we’ll walk over to the check in tent to collect our official loppet glow stick (our entry ticket), then set forth.

Much more information can be found on the Loppet website, so do consult it for additional details and pictures.
