Canoe race follows quick after ski season

There’s plenty of skiing left in the 2019 ski season, but quickly following the last stride on the ski trail is the Snack River Canoe Race on May 4.

This race is part of the Classic Series and is one of largest canoe events in the state. The course is about 24 kilometers long. Mean gradient throughout the course is 5 feet per mile. Rapids are generally all Class I. Check out details under the canoe race tab. Online registration will be available soon.

How long will the ski season last this year?

Skiers enjoyed the trails in Mora until mid April in 2018–This year?

Skiing conditions continue to be excellent at the Vasaloppet Nordic Center. And, there’s
the added bonus of very good trails at the northern ski loops about a 20 minute drive north of Mora.

Skiing there Sunday for the Founders Classic was excellent. That race was held on the Lanternloppet, Beaver Dam and the Memorial trails. Skiers can get those trails by driving north on highway 65 and then turning left onto County Road 25, then right onto County Road 80 until arriving at the parking lot and trailhead on on the left side of the road.

The Nordic Center in Mora remains open daily from 8am until 10pm.
