CCA Glide Waxing Protocol for All CATEGORIES

Cross Country Alberta requests that all coaches, athletes, wax technicians, and parents abide by a self- governed protocol while waxing skis for all athletes. This request applies to all local, regional and provincial events taking place in Alberta (e.g. club races, loppets, regional cup races, AB Cups, AB Youth Championships, and AB Winter Games). This request also applies to athletes traveling to Alberta from out-of-province or out-of-country. The recommended glide waxing protocol is as follows:


  • Structure tools ARE permitted
  • Non-Fluoro (NF) or Low Fluoro (LF) glide waxes ARE permitted
  • Medium Fluoro (MF) or High Fluoro (HF) glide waxes are NOT permitted
  • Pure Fluoro glide waxes (powders, pucks, blocks and liquid) are NOT permitted
  • Cold weather powder additives and hardeners are NOT permitted

The adherence to this protocol is self-governed and is the responsibility of the coaches, athletes, parents and wax technicians.


Competitors in the Juvenile and older categories must have a CCC Racing License, FIS Racing License, Foreign National License, or a CCC Supporting Member Day License (SMDL). A SMDL must be acquired online while registering at www.zone4.ca


Seeding for Provincial events will be done using the following criteria:

All Junior and Senior racers will be automatically included in the Open category for the purposes of awarding prize money in all common race distances. Results will be broken down by age category. All skiers will be eligible for their category specific awards.



Awards will be presented to winners in each category as soon as possible following each race.
Depending on the length of the day, a decision may be made to do two sets of awards.
