More than 200 skiers braved a chilly breeze on Saturday for the 25th annual Northwestel Yukon Loppet on the trails of the Whitehorse Cross Country Ski Club at Mount McIntyre.

Fresh snow and cold temperatures made for slow going as racers competed in 35-, 30-, 20- and 7.5-kilometre distances.

This year’s Loppet resurrected the 35-kilometre event, using the Mt. Mac Ascent/Descent trail. National junior team skier David Greer was the first to return from the mountain, completing the race in 2:17:37.

Katherine Sandiford was the fastest woman in the 35-kilometre distance.

Dave Mockford and Angela Sabo won the 30-kilometre races, while Knute Johnsgaard and Kendra Murray took the 20-kilometres.

George Rivard and Dahria Beatty were tops in the 7.5-kilometre distance.
