Vasaloppet volunteers honored at art show

The Many Faces of Vasaloppet sculpture project was on display at the Vasaloppet Nordic Center May 17-18. Visitors were able to see the aluminum casting of over 150 Vasaloppet volunteers as well as meet the artist, Keith Ravio and others who have assisted in the two-year project. The future vision is to have all the castings in a permanent outdoor display to honor the volunteer spirit of Vasaloppet USA.

Best skiing of season now at Nordic Center

Grooming report March 10

On Sunday following Saturday’s large snowfall, grooming volunteers Jim Wallace and Luke Olen groomed all of the Vasaloppet Nordic Ski Center trails except for the two western Oaks sections. They used two Pisten Bulley groomers to groom a skate lane everywhere, double sets of classic tracks on most of the trail and at least one set of classic tracks everywhere.  It is the best skiing of the winter.
