Michigan Cup Racing 2017-18 Let's KEEP the Cup!
All VSC members are automatically signed up for the Michigan Cup race series. You can earn points that go to the Club's standings for any race on the circuit that you participate in.
Every point counts toward the Club's quest to regain "the Cup."
Most importantly, the races are FUN! and a great way to meet like-minded skiers who love the winter.
Bonus! The VSC-sponsored "Lakes of the North" race on Dec. 16, 2018 is free to all members. It includes a nice lunch. This is the MI Cup season-opener. Do a snow dance so we have a primo course!
North American Vasa sponsored by Short's Brewing Company & Chemical Bank - February 10-11, 2018 at Timber Ridge.
By popular damand, the "Vasa Vice Versa" will happen another year. This means that the courses will run in a counter clockwise direction as they did last year, so you can again view the other side of the Vasa Pathway trees.
The Vasa will also again separate freestyle and classic days. Saturday will be the freestyle day, with 51K, 28K, 11K and 6K races. Sunday will be the classic day, with 34K, 16K and 6K races on a double-tracked course. The change is to provide a better quality race experience for the classic skiers and encourage more classic skier participation. Fat bike races will also be on the agenda, as well as the Junior Vasa. Plan to participate, either as a racer or volunteer!
