What is your recommendation in terms of skis for Vasaloppet – for whom would you recommend going on double poling skis or on wax skis.
The course is flat but has also some climbs which are hard. If you are an elite skier you have to race without kick wax. If you are a recreational skier on a high level with lots of long sessions double poling you can do also without kick wax. For all others kick wax is mandatory. The last victory on kick wax was Jørgen Brink in 2012.
Are Twin Skin skis a suitable solution for some skiers?
Twin Skin skies can be used if you are a really recreational skiers, just skiing to finish the race. If you have some experience with skiing I would advise, put on kick wax.
What is your recommendation in terms of clothing during Vasaloppet?
Very often it is cold at the start and will be warmer during the day. I prefer woolen underwear with thin skiing suit, or you can have thin jacket and pants. Not thick for sure. If it is cold, you should wear a buff and good glove as well as glasses.
