This year’s Miniloppet – a version of the Vasaloppet for the elementary school set – starts today at 1pm.
Just like the real thing, Miniloppet offers skiers a choice of three race lengths: 1.5km, 4km, and 7km. The race is open to all skiers age 13 or younger, and uses the same trails and finish line as the other Vasa races. The course is supervised throughout to ensure safety.
To keep things fun and friendly, no finish times are recorded, and every participant receives a medal at the finish line.
If you’re downtown this afternoon, be sure to cheer on our youngest skiers as they cross the finish today!
