    • Check the forum before each workout as there are occasional changes to sessions in the fall and winter.
    • If you have grown 3kg or more since last fall, it is good to confirm your wax pockets. Drop off skis for flex testing at the teamroom. If something is not a good fit, we will note the weight range for that ski. Ensure skis are clean, scraped, and brushed. We can check skate skis too if needed.

    “One of the great gifts of sport is learning how to fail in public.  People never go to the gym because they’re scared of looking stupid, never share their writing because they’re scared of judgment, never open their heart because they’re scared of rejection. Sports train you to face your fear.” -James Clear.
