Collect start number and data chip
All our participants must wear a start number and data chip. These are collected at the location you chose when registering; at our race offices at the Vasaloppet Trade Fair in Mora or the Vasaloppet start in Berga by, Sälen. You can change the location through My Pages up until the middle of February. Start numbers and data chips that are not collected the day before the race will be at the race office at your start location. On the page Opening Hours you can see when our race offices are open.
What to do with your clothes
All participants handle their own transport of clothes and overalls.
Getting to the start
Participants and leaders or parents can only get to the Eldris start via bus, which leaves from the Mora Trade Fair area at 07:00–08:30. Return trips by bus will run continuously as the busses fill up, starting at 08.45 with the last departure at 10:00.
Participants and leaders or parents can drive to the start. There is also a bus to the Hökberg start departing from the Mora Trade Fair area at 08:30. A return trip for audience members will depart from Hökberg at 10:30.
These busses are free and do not need to be booked. Since our bus capacity and parking area is limited we prefer to see a maximum of one leader or parent accompanying each participant. Our recommendation is to be out in very good time.
Skis and ski poles – pack in a ski bag.
How the start works
The joint start takes place, divided by class, in Hökberg and Eldris.
At the start places in Hökberg and Eldris we have four different start pens (A-D) where we apply self-seeding, which means that you yourself determine which pen you should be in according to our recommendations:
Pen A: You’ve participated in Ungdomsvasan before and placed in the top 5, or are aiming to do so.
Pen B: You’ve participated in Ungdomsvasan before and placed in the top 30, or are aiming to do so.
Pen C: You’ve participated in Ungdomsvasan and/or are a competitive skier.
Pen D: You are participating for the first time or feel that you want plenty of space at the start.
Come to the start in good time. Start times may be subject to change if there are large numbers of participants. Entering the pens will be possible 10 minutes before each start time.
