2018 VASA Classic Ski Races

The North American Vasa

Sponsored by Short's Brewing Company & Chemical Bank

Vasa Classic Sunday, February 11th, 2018

Classic events will include:

  • 34km Lombard Loppet
  • 16km Chemical Bank Classic
  • 6km Classic Race
  • 6km Fun Tour

The challenging courses will capture the rich heritage of traditional cross-country skiing at its finest. The trail will be carefully groomed and double-tracked to provide kick-and-gliders the opportunity to test their skills while enjoying the breath-taking beauty of the Vasa Pathway.

6km Classic Race

The  6km classic race on Sunday is designated for all boys and girls including high school racers. Please note: skiers over age 19 may participate in the 6km race. Given the small number of those over 19 in these races, only the younger racers will be recognized with awards.

6km Fun Tour

Are you a newer skier who wants to partake in the fun but does not want to race?

Or are you an established skier or retired racer who would rather tour than beat yourself up on the race course?

Join us for this 6km FUN, untimed tour for all skiers on Sunday, February 11.  All ages and abilities are encouraged to participate.

Michigan Cup Scoring

Sunday's 16km classic race will count for full Michigan Cup points (starting at 200 points), and the 34km classic race will count for partial Michigan Cup points (starting at 170 points).
