Excellent Trails. Excellent Weather.

2023 Vasaloppet USA ski race week is here. Our all-volunteer trail team have been working very hard and it shows. The trails are in exceptional condition and the weather forecast looks exceptional too.

Here are the WAX RECOMMENDATIONS by Swix for Saturday and Sunday.

If you haven’t registered yet, you can still REGISTER NOW and join in the fun. You can register up to one hour before the start of the race, however, the registration fees increase on Friday so you may want to register before the rate increase.

We hope to see you here in Mora this coming week to celebrate Vasaloppet week with the warm and friendly community of Mora is ready!
