As we get closer to the race, we have a few updates for this weekend for skiers to take note. Please stay tuned to this page for additional updates as they come up.
Parking – there is ample parking everywhere in Mora. All street parking and all parking lots are open for skier parking. Just please respect the handicapped parking signs.
Transfer races – The deadline to transfer to a different in-person race has passed. However, you can still transfer to virtual up to 30 minutes before the start of the in-person races as listed below.
Same-day registration – this year we are offering race-day registrations. Registration will close 30 minutes before the start of the race.
Cold weather protection – we have baggies with mole skin and vaseline available if needed, and they are available at the information booth, packet pick up and at the soup stops.
Bag drop – there will be an area for skiers to leave their bags at the start/finish line on a self-serve, leave-at-your-own-risk basis.
Race start times – After carefully watching the weather report, the temperatures for both Saturday and Sunday is forecasted to warm only about 2 or 3 degrees from 9am to 10am. After much discussion and considering the logistics involved in having to reschedule all of the volunteers, and contact all of the skiers of a potential schedule change, the board of directors opted to keep the start times as originally planned rather than delaying the start. The race start times are as follows.
Saturday 2/12 9:00 am – The Vasa and The Dala mass start in downtown Mora
Saturday 2/12 12:30 pm – The Bellringer and The Team mass start in downtown Mora
Sunday 2/13 9:00 am – The Classic 48K and The Classic 24K mass start in downtown Mora
Sunday 2/13 1:30 pm – The Miniloppet at the Mora Elementary School
