    Glide Wax
    The glide wax recommendation is Swix CH6 or PS6. Glide waxing is not requirement for U10 and U12.  It will not effect racing outcomes at the Track Attack age but can be a fun or funny optional family activity.

    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.  Mark your kick zones clearly please and draw the lines across the top of your ski so they do not disappear when you clean your skis. To find grip zones: click here. Classic race skis can be delivered to the Canmore Nordic tent in the stadium 1.5 hours before the start.

    On race day, Canmore Nordic is responsible for taking the kids registered in Track Attack on a warm up and bringing them the start line. Parents and fans, meet us in the finish area. You will find us eating cookies in the finish area.

    U8/U10/U12 – Participation award for all racers.
    U12/U14/U16 – Year of Birth medals for 1 st , 2 nd , and 3 rd

    I will update the Canmore Nordic Track Attack parent community on the whatsup group when I update the forum with new information. For the link to join: CLICK HERE
