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!

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.
