This is just a reminder that after practice today the skiers will be getting their uniforms at the high school and we will also be waxing their skis to get ready for tomorrow. Most of the skiers should be able to be done in less than an hour, but we want to make sure everyone's skis are ready. If you are choosing to wax your own (or your skiers) skis, that is not a problem. Any questions on what to use or what we as a team are using, please ask.
Also, below is from our "Waxing Basics" page on the right side of the blog. Please read through this, especially for those of you that are new and are interested in knowing more about ski prep. For those that have waxed in the past, please note that the wax industry is in a major change right now, some waxes are not available any more, and some are completely illegal, so max sure to go through the link that shows what CXC (Central Cross Country) has ok'd and is being used for many of the citizen races as well.
Any questions, please let me know,
Below is a link to the basics of waxing and all that can go into getting skis ready. This came from the Bolder Nordic catalog and they said that I could post it. It is very helpful in getting started and understanding some of the lesser known, yet sometimes more important, parts of preparing skis for races. We will work with the skiers on all of this, but if you have any questions, please feel free to ask:
