Last Chance Ski Race, Saturday March 23, 2019 – STARTS 9 AM

The snow is melting quickly so let’s have a ski race before it’s all gone. We still have snow and fun trails at the Nordic Center, so we will groom the best Loop, 5-10km in length, and you can race 1 – 3 laps depending on length. Classic tracks will be set where conditions permit and we will likely have a Classic race.
The Top three male and female finishers in the longest classic and longest skate events will be recognized.
Race starts at 9 am. Registration begins at 7:15am Race day registration only. Last Registration accepted at 8:45AM NO LATE REGISTRATIONS so be sure to arrive early enough to register or you won’t be timed. Fee will be $1 per Kilometer, not to exceed $20.
Let’s hit the trails one last time for the season and have some fun – hope to see you here in Mora this Saturday!

Race start times now delayed 1 hour.

All Vasaloppet races Saturday will be delayed by 1 hour to take advantage of warming temperatures throughout the morning. The Classic will now start at 11am, the Vasa & Dala at 11:15, and the Bell Ringer and the Team will start at 1:30pm. The National Weather Service now calls for temperatures of about -2 at the start of the Classic with a high of 8 at mid afternoon.

Winds are forecast to be mild from the southeast so skiing will be comfortable on the Nordic Center wooded trails. 
Before the start, skiers can take advantage of the warm Celebration Tent that is located only one block from the starting line in downtown Mora.

The Classic is 2 laps/42km, the Dala is 2 laps/36km, the Vasa is 3 laps/54km, and the Bell Ringer is 1 lap/13.5 km
