It will also mark 100 years since the first radio broadcast from Vasaloppet, the first Swedish national radio broadcast from a sporting event.

Relevance and Traditions

Vasaloppet is not just the biggest ski race in the world; it’s also one of the most significant sports events globally. The brand has evolved into an institution with several events and activities in its annual Summer and Winter weeks.

Since 1922, over 1.8 million participants have crossed Vasaloppet’s finish line portal. The race’s saga goes back to 1520, depicting the tale of Gustav Eriksson Vasa, who rebelled against Denmark and eventually became the first King of free Sweden. 

A Popular Mountain Destination 

Sälen, the start location of Vasaloppet, is Sweden’s most popular alpine ski area, known for its seven alpine ski resorts. The oldest of them is Högfjällshotellet, which was built in 1937 and remained one of the most popular vacation destinations in the area. In 2019, Scandinavian Mountains Airport opened. 

Many mountain huts also serve waffles, snacks, and hot drinks, which Vasaloppet participants can enjoy before the long journey from Sälen to Mora. 

Swedish Tradition at its Best

Of course, Mora is world-famous as the finish location of Vasaloppet, but it is much more. There is a very idyllic Scandinavian-style downtown area with boutiques, cafés with Swedish’ fika,’ great diners, and restaurants serving local dishes.

The town is also known for its Mora knives and longcase clocks, and today, for example, high-quality mixer taps with functional designs are manufactured and sold in the global market. Everyone also knows the area’s symbol: “Dalahäst,” a traditional carved, painted wooden statue of a horse originating in the Swedish province of Dalarna. IFK Mora is one of the most successful cross-country ski clubs in Sweden.

With good cooperation over the years, Vasaloppet and Ski Classics have continued to develop together, bringing a century of traditions and culture since 1922 and recreating it in a modern way.
