Ski Waxing – The Nordic Center has a wax room available. Also, our friends at Finnsisu, Pioneer Midwest, Gear West, and Tonka Cycle and Ski all have Vasaloppet ski waxing specials. Contact them for details.
The start and finish area will be in downtown Mora, one block from the Celebration Tent so this is a great place to wait and keep warm before the start of your race.
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.
There is ample parking all over the City of Mora.
The Vasaloppet uses a system that allows skiers to place themselves at the start area according to their realistic expectations of their finish time.
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.
Showers Available at the high school from 11:30 am to 3:30pm. Be sure to bring your own towel.
