Despite warm temperatures, and low snowfall the VASA Ski Races, held near Traverse City, were successfully held this past weekend. This was not accomplished without great effort. With snowfall this year at half the normal amount, snow was trucked in to create a base for grooming the double tracked trail.

The VASA event, held this past weekend, always includes races for serious competitors, those who just want a fun experience, and also family and kid-friendly events. Distances range from the 50k Freestyle National Masters, down to a half kilometer event for kids under 5 years of age.

Thousands of people from around the country, even the world, travel each year to this event, bringing an economic boost to the area.
