How to influence your start position
In Vasaloppet you can affect which group you start in by skiing a so called seeding race. After showing your mettle in such a race you will be placed in an appropriate start group. Under the heading Seeding, you can read more details about how our seeding works.
Information is sent out to clubs and participants active in the elite group.
More information on elite groups can be found on the page Seeding.
Bus to start
Once in place at the event you can take the Vasaloppet busses to the start and back home after your finish. With the busses you’re guaranteed to arrive well rested and on time, and you can leave your car at home. Tickets are sold at vasaloppet.se, at the bus entrances, and at the race offices in Sälen and Mora. We recommend advance booking to secure your place!
On the page The Vasaloppet busses you’ll find timetables, bus stops and ticket booking. You can also get to the start area by car, in which case we recommend leaving in very good time!
Through Vasaloppet’s official wax services you can get your skis waxed before the race. Vasaloppet’s wax services can be booked in advance, though the number of pre-bookings is limited.
Collect start number and data chip
All our participants must wear a start number and data chip. These are collected at our race offices. 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.
Start numbers for Vasaloppet can be collected from Thursday February 27.
