New Year’s Kick-Off With Vasaloppet China

The first few days of the New Year are already intense with a Ski Classics Challengers event. Vasaloppet China takes place this Wednesday, January 4, in Changchun.

Vasaloppet China

Vasaloppet China, the Ski Classics Challengers event in Asia, got the green light from the Chinese authorities and will be able to organize the event for the 21st time. 

Still facing international travel restrictions, participation in the event on-site in Changchun will be only available for Chinese citizens or, eventually, any foreign long-distance skier living in China. 

Vasaloppet China, the biggest cross-country ski event in China, is organized in the suburbs of Changchun, Jilin Province, in the Northeast of China. The event is a 50km long-distance classic race with three laps surrounded by beautiful nature, similar to Northern Europe. There is also a 25km event available for those who crave a shorter-distance race. 

The ski area is in Jingyuetan National Forest Park, which has a total area of about 100 square kilometers. The park consists of large forest areas with water features, and the topography is moderate to very hilly, but the course is suitable for all skiers.

In 2007 the park hosted a World Cup stage, and in 2017 Vasaloppet China was a member event of the Ski Classics Pro Tour. The area has excellent conditions for Nordic skiing, and the settings around the ski arena are graced by massive snow sculptures, which are a part of the Changchun Winter Festival.
