Celebration Tent (canceled for 2022 due to COVID-19)
Due to the surge of the Omicron virus, and in an abundance of caution for the health and safety of skiers, volunteers, and the community of Mora,  there will be no Celebration Tent this year.

Parking
There is ample parking all over the City of Mora.

Self-seeding
The Vasaloppet uses a system that allows skiers to place themselves at the start area  according to their realistic expectations of their finish time.

Sportsmanship 
Please show consideration for your fellow skiers on the trail by following trail etiquette, including the yielding of the track. A special note to The Classic skiers – It’s a Classic style race so skating, even only a few strides is not cool (and could get you disqualified if a protest is filed.) If you really like that skate motion please register for The Vasa or The Dala Freestyle races.

If you drop out of the race 
If you drop out of the race, notify a volunteer at a soup stop, or someone in the race area, or check in to the skier drop out area on Lake Mora near Bell Tower Hill.

Awards Ceremony (canceled due to COVID-19)
There will be no awards ceremony this year due to the need to cancel the Celebration Tent. The overall top three race winners for all races will be recognized on the podium by the front of race headquarters.

Double Loppet
If you participated in the City of Lakes Loppet skiing, skijoring, or fat tire events, then ski, skijor, or ride your fat tire in our events, you will receive your Double Loppet award. The awards will be available at race headquarters.

Lost items 
Please file a report if you have requested a recovered item, including a broken pole, to be returned to you. Reports are available at the Vasaloppet headquarters. Lots of the lost items end up at the race office so check there.
