    Glide Wax
    Glide waxing is not required but if you are feeling inspired, go for it. If you are feeling overwhelmed, fear not. Glide waxing will not affect racing outcomes at the Track Attack age and is not required. Wax your Skate and Classic skis with: CH6(PS6) or Ulla violet/black. Start with a metal brush, wipe your base with a shop towel to remove any dirt, then apply your wax. Those using the traditional iron method, ensure you scrape and brush very well afterward.

    Classic ski grip wax preparation
    The Canmore Nordic waxing team will apply grip wax on race day. The expectation is that classic skis are marked with your child’s name and race category with a marked, clean and sanded grip zone.

    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. There will be no team meeting for Track Attack. Race start lists will be posted on at about 4pm the day before the race.
