2024 Vasaloppet USA Race Canceled
February 6, 2024 – Miniloppet has been moved to Sunday 1:00pm at the Nordic Center. With a short cold spurt forecasted on Friday and Saturday, we will take advantage of that to prepare a 1km loop around the Nordic Center.
February 1, 2024 – After much deliberation, Vasaloppet USA has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s races. Despite the heroic efforts of our volunteer snow farmers, the persistent, unseasonably warm weather has deteriorated our existing 7km trail of manmade snow. With daily highs in the low 40’s and no ability to make additional snow or groom this week, we will not be able to put on a race worthy of the Vasaloppet name. Open skiing for all until the trail is gone.
HOWEVER, Let’s have some fun with the little snow we DO have with the Miniloppet and a casual day of skiing.
At this time, we are optimistic that we can still have a short loop of skiable snow on Saturday, February 10th. We invite interested skiers to come up for a casual ski and camaraderie:
- When: Saturday, February 10
- Where: Vasaloppet USA Nordic Center
- 1.5-2.0km loop trail for casual skiing (rock skis recommended)
- Blueberry soup & Smores
- Free t-shirts & bags to first 100 people
- Open skiing 7am-9:45am
- Miniloppet kids race 10am-11am
- Open skiing 12pm on
Note that other Vasaloppet Race Week events are still going on as planned.
