WENATCHEE — The annual Hog Loppet back-country ski trek scheduled for Feb. 22 has been canceled due to an unstable snowpack in the Cascades.

The move was announced Saturday afternoon by the Leavenworth Winter Sports Club, which puts on the 30-kilometer tour from the Mission Ridge Ski & Board Resort to Blewett Pass. Hop Loppet typically attracts about 600 cross-country skiers from around the Northwest. It is in its 26th year.
