Welcome to our new website

The Vasaloppet USA website, as you can see, has a new look and an entirely different format. The website now includes all the Mora Classic Events: The Vasaloppet, the Snake River Canoe Race, the Mora Half Marathon &5k, and the Mora Bike Tour.

Visitors to the site will also discover a new registration system that enables participants in all Classic events to register online for all the Classic Races. Further, you can register for multiple Vasaloppet USA events, for example one person skiing the 42km Classic and another the 35Km race, on a single credit card transaction. The TeamLoppet registration is now also abatable online.

With such an extensive makeover of the website we suspect users will discover problems. If you do, please let us know at: information@vasaloppet.us

 

Snow-making begins this Winter

First phase of long range plan

Thanks to generous donations the Vasaloppet board of directors has approved the purchase of snow-making equipment.

That equipment is scheduled to arrive in time for making snow on the Nordic Center’s 3km lighted trail beginning in late November.

Besides the equipment purchase, a water cooling pond will be constructed at the Nordic Center.

In upcoming years the race plans to expand the amount of artificial snow to other areas of the Nordic Center trail system.

Register today, fees go up Nov. 1

Skiers have the month of October to enjoy the current $80 registration price. Beginning Nov. first the fee increases to $90. The five Vasaloppet USA races, 58km, 35km, 42km Classic, 12km and TeamLoppet will take place on Saturday, February 13.

Vasaloppet USA land purchase

Donations have allowed Vasaloppet USA to purchase a key parcel of land that is part of the Nordic center trail system. A new ski trail was created on the land several years ago and offers a number of hills. Although not currently part of the Vasaloppet race course, the property is earmarked to be used for future races and part of long range plans to expand the Nordic Center trails to serve as a venue for the Vasaloppet ski race.
