Nordic Ski Waxing Clinic

Clinic

Nordic Ski Waxing Clinic - Mountaineers Tacoma Program Center

Enhance your cross country skiing experience this winter by learning how to hot wax your skis to improve your glide and speed.

  • For Beginners (Getting Started Series)

Sun, Nov 17, 2019 from 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM

Where: Tacoma Program Center, 2302 N 30th St, Tacoma, WA 98403 Great Hall

This 2.5 hour waxing clinic will teach you how to hot wax your Nordic skis for  improved performance.  This includes both classic and skate cross country skis. Waxless classic ski tips and tails  need glide wax too. We will demonstrate how to choose the proper ski wax by temperature and how to apply it to the ski glide zone, as well as what equipment and supplies you will need to make your own waxing station.  The clinic leaders will give a complete demonstration on hot waxing from start to finish.  Once a Nordic skier experiences skiing on recently hot waxed skis, the skier wants to repeat the hot wax process again and  again.  In order to respect the facility, it is not possible for participants to wax their own skis at this clinic.
