Hello Ski Fans,
The Wax packages which we ordered in the spring are ready to be picked up at Kelowna Cycle. You have not paid for them as of yet. This is a link to the original order through our website HERE.
December skiing will all be part of our ‘Classic December’ plan. This of course means grip waxing. We have a lot of instruction and skiing activities to fit into only a hour and half. So…
-Make sure you are ready to go on time…which means arriving 10-15? early
-Do the majority of waxing at home. Start with a cold base wax (Green or Super Blue Rode) and heated in, and then one Marginally warmer layer corked in over top.
-Bring your own wax and cork to practice. Bring the wax of the day and one warmer with you while you ski.
The 4 most important hard Waxes for skiing at Telemark are RODE Violet, RODE Viola Multigrade, RODE Super Blue and RODE Extra(rot). This covers 0 to -20C
The Next ones to buy would be in this order: RODE Super Extra, RODE Blue Multigrade and RODE Viola Extra. These are the best waxes we use and they are also the least expensive at $12 each.
Klister! Last year we needed to use more Klister than ever before at practise and races. Generally you need at least two Klisters.
- A Red Klister like RODE Rosa, Start MFW Red or Yellow…
- A Universal Klister like Start “WIDE” or Swix K22 Universal
- A Colder Klister like RODE Multigrade or Violet
These are all in stock at Kelowna Cycle 2949 Pandosy Street.
Please do not waste your money on any of the VR line of Swix waxes; we have only used them once in the last 3 seasons at the races and it turned out we should have used RODE Super Extra instead.
-Adam will have the wax of the day posted on the white board in the racing room. There will be one to two tins of that wax on the wax bench, this is not enough to get 20 kids waxing (see previous point).
-We would like kids to be responsible for waxing their own skis, but we are going to need assistance from parents on a rotating basis for waxing at practice. If you can’t make it then it will be your responsibility to find a replacement.
