All coaches, athletes, wax technicians, and parents must abide by the following protocol while waxing skis for athletes racing in all age categories. This also applies to athletes traveling to Alberta from out-of-province or out-of-country. The 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.
