Forthcoming events

For the time being we are having to adapt our activities to comply with government restrictions and the guidelines given by Snowsport England.  Sadly all indoor meets and pub evenings are curtailed at the moment.  But roller skiing and other outdoor meets (bike rides, walks, etc) will go ahead within the above-mentioned constraints.  Stay healthy.  Watch this space and keep in touch.

Loipers Dates for 2020

Saturday 22 August – Roller-ski coaching day at Hetton Country Park, Durham.  Now a one day event – suitable for all abilities.  We have a first-rate coaching team.  Detailed information here.  Contact Alan Mitcham.

Wednesday 21 October, 8pm – Loipers AGM.  This year it will be online – the usual AGM business followed by some entertainment from some club members.

7th to 14th March 2021 – Nordic ski touring based at Mosstrond in Norway.  Followed by optional hut to hut ski tour across Hardangervidda.  Hopefully this will be able to go ahead depending on any Corona-virus restrictions. Contact Neil Waters.

21st to 28th March 2021 – Snowsport England on-snow coaching week at Nordseter, Norway.  More details from Gwenda Cavill (see News Page).

Regular updates are sent via the Loipers group email list.

In normal (non-covid) times, watch out for details of our regular pub meets through the winter months.

For more information about roller skiing, get in touch with Allie.

As always, all are welcome to join in the fun. Check out our Facebook group Tyneside Loipers to find out who is going skiing (summer or winter) locally. If you want to join us but don’t have the necessary kit, we might be able to help. A list of club kit is given here.
