  Over 7km of superb skiing on manufactured snow at the Vasaloppet Nordic Center. Great classic tracks. Additional tracks were being set late afternoon in skate lane in preparation for Northwest Suburban Conference meet but they will be tilled out Wednesday night. Additional distance continues to be added as course buildout continues in preparation for Vasaloppet Ski Race Feb 10th.

  Actively grooming for Saturday race on a designated course, good skate deck but a little uneven with intermittent classic tracks and ruts. Older courderay definitely firmer and faster, but the newly groomed swath should set up well with the cold night ahead.

Firsthand Scheduling 
[ Trails Open: Most, B skis ]
  A southern trip today to experience the hospitality of the Vasaloppet folks. Hadn't been to Mora since lasts year's incredible race! There's some really good skiing at the center - nice long flat and smooth trails. I was also guided, by several of the regulars, to the northeastern trails. There are constant efforts underway to cover all the trails with snow using several "snow spreaders" being pulled by very large farm tractors. I got to witness the spreading firsthand. I think the complex is just days away from being fully groomed. They also mentioned that the ABC relays are scheduled there for Saturday so with 650 skiers coming you may want to avoid that day.

  The Nordic Center trails currently have nearly 7km of ski trail that is open and groomed. Over 5km consists of manufactured snow that also has classic tracks. A good part of the newly added trail section to the northeast which includes some nice hills and plenty of winding trail has natural snow that is skiing really great right now. Snow hauling out to more trail sections continues daily and heavy equipment at times must cross or use short sections of groomed trail for access so be careful when encountering tis machinery.

  Decent coverage, some debris and dirt spots. They've done a commendable job moving snow to cover the trails. North from the Nordic Center is packed ice from all the tractor traffic but what can you expect? Best conditions are on the short loop south of the center.
