SECTION Wax preparations


Skate AND Classic - Drop off by Saturday evening at 10:00pm

  1. Drop off your classic skis to the Woodbury wax room by 10:00pm Saturday night.

    1. Classic kick zone must be scraped and cleaned 

    2. Unless otherwise instructed by a coach, you must apply 1 layer of  light blue glide wax to the glide zones of your classic AND skate skis. 

      1. If we did your skis for Conference, we'll do them for Sections - coaches will reach out to any additions to the list of skiers who will have their skis waxed for them. 

      2. You can just wax over what you put on for Conference

    3. You must VERY CLEARLY LABEL your skis with painters tape. 

      1. Include: name, type of ski (classic or skate)

      2. Make sure your glide zones are VERY CLEARLY labeled and easy for coaches to identify. This can be done with electrical tape if you need to re-mark your kick zone. 

    4. Tapes and markers will be available at the Woodbury wax room when you drop your skis off.

We plan to have all skis done and ready to take home after practice on Monday evening.  If that doesn't happen, we'll get them on Tuesday morning with the bus.

Theodore Wirth Trail Passes

Online sales are now open for purchasing a $50 discounted Theodore Wirth trail pass! Theodore Wirth offers kilometers of great trail right in the heart of Minneapolis, including artificial snow trails when conditions aren't ideal. These trail passes are not required. However, we will be making several short trips over to Theodore Wirth throughout the season, and athletes who wish to attend will need passes. Skiers may also use the trail pass outside of practice and past the end of the season. 

Here is the link to purchase the annual pass (youth athletes and coaches only). When you purchase the ski pass, you must enter the discount code PWERSkis1920.  Once the discount code is applied, choose "all access ski pass - main holder," which will appear as costing $50 once the discount code is applied. Watch this video if you're having trouble, or let Coach Voegele know if you have any issues. 

*Day passes are available at Theodore Wirth, however we do not recommend this option as a day pass is $20.
