Early snow in Mora on November 8, 2018 – that's guaranteed!
The Vasaloppet Arena opens for skiing on Thursday, November 8 at 17:00. We will boldly state that there's probably never been so many early opportunities for skiing at Swedish resorts and facilities. When are specific destinations opening for cross-country skiing? We have the answers.
The Vasaloppet Arena gave skiing opportunities for over six months this previous winter. And the Vasaloppet track in Mora will open soon once more, just ahead of the second weekend of November. How long will the track be?
Johan Eriksson, Vasaloppet’s Development Manager, explains:
“We’re saving 10,00 cubic metres of snow, which will hopefully be enough for an 8 km track (2 times 4 km) starting in the Vasaloppet Arena. There will be a ski-in/ski-out point in central Mora by the Zorn Museum. The track will be prepared for both skate and classic style.
