X-Country Ski Wax Clinics for 2019

Mike Stern will again be conducting more practical ski waxing clinics in the new year from the basement of his house.  In these clinics you will be taught how to clean and prepare your cross-country skis and also learn how to apply hot glide wax and grip wax to the relevant areas of your own skis.  These are hands-on sessions and he will show you how each task is done and then get you to practice with his help on your own skis.  At the end of the session you will end up with a set of fully waxed skis.

The clinics usually last up to three hours and are normally limited to a maximum of four people per session.  All waxes and tools are provided but you are welcome to bring your own. The clinics are suitable for novice to intermediate skiers.  A comprehensive step-by-step ski waxing guide is included with the clinic. The cost of each clinic is $15 perperson of which a portion is donated to the Edmonton Nordic trail grooming fund.   The clinics will be held on Tuesday evenings starting at 7 PM.

Initial dates are:

  • 08 Jan
  • 15 Jan
  • 22 Jan
