The North American VASA is a Michigan Cup race and part of the American Ski Marathon Series. New this year: The Vasa is a Freestyle event only. There will be classic tracks, but the race combines skate and classic skiers together for placing. No worries: The Gran Travers (now the Vasa Classic) is the premier classic event, with new distances!

  • 11km, 28km and 48km freestyle races
  • Junior VASA
  • 6km freestyle (14-19 years of age only) Younger skiers are welcome to enter. Please note: Skiers over age 19 may participate in the 6K race, but given the small number of those over 19 in this race, only the younger racers will be recognized with awards.

  • 12km & 33km fat bike races

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.
