The Mora Vasaloppet is a special race in the hearts of thousands of skiers who have experienced it. The colorful mass start, the separate 58K and 35K courses, the wooded trails, and the exciting finish line in downtown Mora are reasons why the race is the largest in Minnesota and one of the biggest participation winter athletic events in the United States.
But more satisfying are the words of skiers who comment on the warm, hospitable attention they receive. And that is what defines the Vasaloppet. Through it’s over 700 volunteers, the Mora community not only produces the race, but makes the race so special to skiers.
