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
It is important to notify the race office and soup stops are equipped with cell phones for your use. Ask a soup stop volunteer for the person in charge of the phones. Remember, there might be someone at thr finishline waiting for you.
Showers Available at Mora High School. Be sure to bring your own towel.
