  Skated laps on a 3.5 mile loop following the main trail, presumably the Vasaloppet course without the north end pines and the pasture NW of the center. Best conditions of the year up to now, groomed "corn" snow layer on top of a firm base. A pickup with tracks on the wheels was doing additional grooming that turned the corn into sugar, which was a little looser but still fast. A few small stones turned up here and there, and a few areas with dirt. Mini muffins and popcorn at the center, gotta love that Mora hospitality! Thank you groomers and all involved with a top notch operation!

  Trails were groomed with >5km of classic tracks set on Eastern trails, other trails have natural snow and are in fair condition.

  The entire time I was skiing the snow was piling up on the trails. No, they did not get one flake from the storm but the manufacturing, moving and spreading of snow continued the entire time I was there. They are building the base for the Vasaloppet, creating a 17K loop. Conditions were firm and fast. Stayed on the newly groomed trails and had a wonderful ski. Even with no more snow there should be great conditions for the Vasaloppet.

  Surprisingly firm and fast given the warm temps, some dirt here and there, especially in the classic track. Confusing layout on the north end, but you can find a loop easy enough.

  Over 7km of superb skiing on manufactured snow at the Vasaloppet Nordic Center. Great classic tracks. Additional tracks were being set late afternoon in skate lane in preparation for Northwest Suburban Conference meet but they will be tilled out Wednesday night. Additional distance continues to be added as course buildout continues in preparation for Vasaloppet Ski Race Feb 10th.
