VASA Freestyle Races

The North American Vasa

Sponsored by Short's Brewing Company

Freestyle Saturday, February 11th, 2017

Races Scheduled:

  • 11km, 28km and 48km freestyle races
  • Junior VASA
  • 6km freestyle (for kids 14-19 years of age)
  •  Short's Short 6 km Tour
  •  10km & 42km fat bike races

The freestyle race course will be groomed with a classic track, so classic skiers are welcome to participate in the freestyle races.  However, they will be timed with the freestylers.

6km Freestyle  Race

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

Short's Short 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 race?

Then join us for the Short's Short Tour, a 6 km FUN, untimed tour for all skiers on Saturday, February 11.  All ages and abilities are encouraged to participate. The entry fee will include the same spiffy hat that the racers get.

Michigan Cup Scoring

Saturday's Vasa 48km freestyle race will count for full Michigan Cup points, and the 28km race will count for partial points.
