  I drove up to Mora for some striding. They've made lots of snow and groomed and tracked many kilometers. There's lots of snow ready for final groom for the races this weekend. While the tracks and skate lanes were crusty, there was plenty of snow and no people. This place is a gem! Incredibly welcoming people and the Nordic center is phenomenal: interesting architecture, free sauna/shower, wax room with benches, irons, scrapers, brushes, and kick waxes. Support this place - it's a treasure.

Observation 
[ Trails Open: Most ]
  Our Vasaloppet Nordic Ski Center trails in Mora are in fabulous condition. Our snow farmers have been hauling and spreading manufactured snow since the first week of December. They now have covered 10 miles of trail with manufactured snow. We will likely have more kilometers of trail covered with manmade snow than anywhere in the country. They are firm, groomed and tracked daily and great fun. Last summer we added two new great hills and over a kilometer of new trail. We are looking forward to skiing our Moraloppet Ski for the Cause on Saturday. For the Vasaloppet on Saturday, February 9th the Vasa race will be three laps for 54K; the Classic race will be two laps for 42K, the Dala race will be two laps for 36K and the Bell Ringer will be 13K. Come and check them out and register for the Vasaloppet. On Sunday, February 10th we will have exciting Fat Tire, Skijoring, Spark Sled and Miniloppet races.

[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
  Very good conditions. 10 degrees, started snowing on my second lap. All the limited brown spots from the 1/12-13 weekend were gone. There were a ton of high school racers. I got a 10 minute head start on the boys and fortunately they did not catch me despite the fact that I was really dragging. Took a breather in the trail center and did the same thing - got a 10 minute head start on the girls and again they did not catch me but I cheated and skipped one of the branches that time. I used FastWax Teal LF. It was slow.

  6 km open and groomed perfect. Perfect corduroy skate deck and a deep hard track. Snow farmers were working hard spreading more trail.

Firsthand Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
  Skiing Tuesday late afternoon both classic and skated course was very good. The skate surface is being groomed daily. Conditions are excellent for skate and good to very good for classic. Most of course is Good ski rated. Two small spots at entrance and exit of Little Round Top have a little dirt/stone debris. Easy to avoid but this is worth noting.
Snowmaking will resume again Tuesday night and likely will continue around the clock for a week as very cold temperatures arrive early Wednesday morning. Snow Farmers continue to expand the trail (currently over 6km) to a planned 18km course for the Feb. 9-10 Vasaloppet weekend. Nordic Center open daily 8am-10pm. Also 3km of lighted trails.
