Don’t be intimidated by waxing your own cross-country skis. It’s easier than you think! This clinic will give you all the skills you need to get started, whether you’re on waxable or waxless Nordic skis.

Skill level: beginner

Format: knowledge-based, small group class

 

You’ll learn

· What you need to wax your own Nordic skis, including affordable, easy options

Please leave your own skis at home, where you can practice your new skills on them later. We’ll use demo skis and gear in class to show you how it’s done.
