North American Vasa
Nordic skiers have long enjoyed the pristine nature of the Vasa Pathways. Thanks to the vision, hard work, and generosity of George Lombard and many volunteers that trail was developed and granted recreational trail status by the DNR. Thanks to the grooming expertise provided by TART, skiers enjoy world-class conditions on this beautiful forest pathway.
The mission of the North American VASA is to promote the sport of cross-country skiing in Northwest Lower Michigan through VASA ski events. Those events shall be well organized, economical, fun and community oriented for all ages and abilities.
We recognize and respect the needs and desires of winter trail users. The NAV will engage in a collaborative effort involving the DNR and all interested groups to optimize the trail experience for all users.
The North American Vasa resolves that we will lend our efforts and expertise to crafting a solution acceptable to both skiers and bikers.
