Vasaloppet China with a history of almost 20 years gathers each edition about 800 participants from around the world in Changchun, China. The event was part of the Pro Tour in season VII (2016/2017) and is now back in the series as a Challengers event.
Vasaloppet China is one of China’s most popular long-distance ski races, 50km race in classic technique. In addition to the full distance, the event also features a 25km race. There is a a great atmosphere at the ski arena, framed by an outstanding snow sculpture park.
The Vasaloppet Ski Arena is located in Jingyuetan National Forest Park in the outskirts of Changchun, Jilin Province and is part of the annual Snow and Ice Festival, which has its opening ceremony just days before the Vasaloppet China.
”Chinas biggest ski event with a history of soon 20 years will this year join the Visma Ski Classics Challengers series. We hope that the collaboration shall bring a deeper interest for long-distance skiing in China. Our goal is that the sport of cross-country skiing will continue to grow in China, since it is a fantastic sport for everyone and has a very big positive effect on peoples health", says Björn Lind, Vasaloppet China Event Director.
