Clothing bag  
A bag tag will be included with your race packet. Please confirm that the number on the bag tag matches your bib number. You may use your own personal clothing bag, or a clothing bag provided by Vasaloppet USA. Securely close your bag and attach the bag tag so that the number is clearly visible.

Bag drop-off/pick-up and changing rooms  
Drop off your bag at Tinker Larson auto dealership and pick it up after you finish your race. You must have your race bib to claim your bag. Changing rooms are also available.

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 
Will be held in the Celebration Tent on both Saturday and Sunday

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.
