INTRO TO NORDIC SKI WAXING, PRESENTED BY COAST OUTDOORS

GET INFORMED. GET INSPIRED.

Waxing your skis can seem like a messy, intimidating process that requires expensive equipment. In this clinic, Bob Putnam, Co- Owner of Coast Outdoors/ Deep Cove Kayak will demonstrate that waxing and maintaining your skis can be done with a few simple tools and inexpensive materials.  Like a lot of sports, you can spend a lot of time (and money) on advanced waxing techniques and equipment, and many people do! However, our goal is that you walk away from this clinic with the knowledge to get you waxing your skis simply, effectively and affordably.

INFO

 
The appropriate use of waxes will have your skis performing better in a wider variety of conditions. For many skiers, gaining confidence with waxing is an important and satisfying part of the sport.

By the end of the session, you will be familiar with:

  • Tools & materials required to wax alpine skis.
  • Techniques for applying waxes.
  • Base preperation and cleaning. 

Bob Putnam has extensive experience providing wax support for nordic racers competing up to a national level.
