LET THE STRATHCONA Nordics Junior Racers wax your Royal LePage Snow to Surf skis

Nordics can give you the racer’s edge

Team members will be waxing cross-country skis April 27 at Mount Washington

Do you want to improve your Royal LePage Snow to Surf Adventure Relay Race team’s time this year? The Strathcona Nordics Junior Racers can help. They will be waxing cross-country skis with high performance glide wax, so Nordic skiers can enjoy better glide during the race.

On Saturday, April 27 from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m., the Junior Racers will be stationed outside the Mount Washington Alpine Lodge. When relay race teams are picking up their race package, they can let the Junior Racers wax the cross-country skis ($20/pair for performance glide wax and $10/pair for regular glide wax) and skiers can improve their time.

The Junior Racers wax under the supervision of head coach Dave Battison who is a National waxing guru. “Performance glide wax can improve your time by as much as 10 per cent,” says Battison.

The team reminds you to bring the cross-country skis up the mountain when you pick up the race package and to bring some cash to pay for the waxing. You will find the Junior Racers outside the Alpine Lodge under the red Strathcona Nordics tent.
