Skis: Skis will either need to be dropped off in the wax trailer the night/day before your race your race. Skis need to be clean of grip and glide wax. 

Please do not bring your skis at the last moment as you will frustrate the wax team and your skis will not be given priority and the wax quality could suffer. 




Food: Athletes will be responsible for all of their food. Food planning will depend on each athletes as everyone is going to have different starting times. Once starting times are posted we will recommend a food planning schedule. It will be important to have pre - race snacks post race snacks and a post race meal planned. Do not wait until you get home to eat as you will be to hungry and this will impact your recovery for the following day. 


In the USA when we race different teams have a tail gate party for food for athletes and volunteers. This looks like a table with slow cookers, snacks, drinks. It creates a nice social way to end the race and be well fed after the race. It also helps the volunteers and coaches that are busy through the day supporting athletes. If there is someone that is interested in organizing this please let me kno.


What to bring:

1 Skate or Classic Warm up and Race skis depending on the day

2.  Clothing for warm up racing and post race. Make sure that you change your base layers to so that you are warm right away after your race. 

3. Food for pre and post race
