    Wax: 3 layers of blue
    The forecast is still for colder weather on Monday. Be sure your child arrives in weather appropriate clothing. Frozen hands happen in thin nordic gloves. As I mentioned in the parent meeting, mitts that can fit in nordic pole straps, are a must and will help everyone enjoy skiing safely in cold weather.

    Thursday, December 8

    Alberta Cup December 10 and 11
    Registration deadline is December 6..
    The focus is on fun. Ten minutes of kids trying their best on nordic skis, followed by many hours of playing in snow with your teammates. Racing is a great way to get your kid hooked and build team in a supportive atmosphere.

    How a race day looks
    Details for the race weekend (arrival time, updates from the coach meeting, etc) will be posted on the forum the night before each race at about 7pm. Race start lists will be posted on at about 4pm the day before the race. I will post a glide wax recommendation on Thursday using the most accurate weather forecast for the weekend. It will follow the club waxing guide and instruction for when to drop off classic skis (glide waxed by you, but clean kick zones) to the teamroom for grip waxing by our wax team.

    -Designed to build independence in the athletes. Allows parents to cheer for their kids and volunteer at the races.
    -Sign up on zone 4
    -Race details will be posted on the forum as soon as they become available.
    -Waxing classic skis- The Canmore Nordic waxing team will apply grip wax on race morning. Parents are required to drop off skis, usually the night before the race. The expectation is that classic skis are marked with your child’s name and race category with a marked, clean and sanded grip zone. To find grip zones: click here
    -glide waxing is not required and will not effect racing outcomes. If you or your child is keen, a glide wax recommendation will be posted on the forum.
    -Start lists- usually posted in the evening before each race on zone 4.
    -Race day: The drop off time is one hour before start times. Drop off time will be posted on the forum after the start list is released.
    -Volunteers will warm up, bring to the start line, meet at the finish line and cool down your child.
    -No awards for U10 and U11.

    No sessions
