Weather and snow situation has been causing problems to organisers in Ushuaia, Argentina. The opening competitions of the season scheduled for the upcoming weekend have been cancelled and it is insecure if the Ushuaia Loppet will take place from 9th-17th August.

“The weather has not been helping us to organise the competitions. The courses where the opening competitions of the season should have taken place are without snow. It was a very difficult decision we had to make,” Sebastián Menci, member of the Club Andino Ushuaia (CAU) said. 

Ushuaia Loppet in danger

The Ushuaia Loppet scheduled from 9th-17th August has not been confirmed yet. As of 2015 the Ushuaia Loppet is going to be part of the Worldloppet family. “We are going to wait until the end of this week and then we will decide about all the events in August. We hope for snowfalls in the competition area to improve the snow conditions allowing us to carry out all the competitions as planned,” CEO of Ushuaia Loppet Pablo Valcheff said.
