Classic Ski Races

The North American Vasa

Sponsored by Short's Brewing Company & Chemical Bank

Vasa Classic Sunday, February 9th, 2020

Classic events will include:

  • 34km Lombard Loppet
  • 34K Cut-off for first lap completion 11 am
  • 17km Chemical Bank Classic
  • 6km Classic Race (up to age 19 only)
  • 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 up to age 19, including high school racers. Please note: skiers over age 19 may participate in the 6km race, but 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.  All ages and abilities are encouraged to participate.

Michigan Cup Scoring

Sunday's 17km 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 175 points). The Michigan Cup committee makes this scoring decision.
