We're heading into the winter season, time to grab the Nordic skis and snowshoes from storage and put away the shorts and bring out the winter gear. Are your Nordic skis looking a little dry? Fuzzy on the bottom? Time for a wax job. Come to one of our Wax Clinics and learn how you can be your own tech. It's not as hard as you may think it is, we will show you 'how to" do it yourself.

Nordic Wax Clinics $10

The base of all cross-country skis is made from materials designed to repel water. Over time, they lose that ability - in order to maintain the base of the skis and to increase the efficiency of the skis water repellency, it is essential to wax them. If you ever see the bases of your skis looking slightly white the base has oxidized, and no amount of waxing can return it. To prevent that, make sure you wax your skis at least every 4-5 times you ski. In these clinics we will show you how to do it yourself an save time and money
