Snow-making begins this Winter

First phase of long range plan

Thanks to generous donations the Vasaloppet board of directors has approved the purchase of snow-making equipment.

That equipment is scheduled to arrive in time for making snow on the Nordic Center’s 3km lighted trail beginning in late November.

Besides the equipment purchase, a water cooling pond will be constructed at the Nordic Center.

In upcoming years the race plans to expand the amount of artificial snow to other areas of the Nordic Center trail system.

Vasaloppet USA land purchase

Donations have allowed Vasaloppet USA to purchase a key parcel of land that is part of the Nordic center trail system. A new ski trail was created on the land several years ago and offers a number of hills. Although not currently part of the Vasaloppet race course, the property is earmarked to be used for future races and part of long range plans to expand the Nordic Center trails to serve as a venue for the Vasaloppet ski race.
