Equipment

BEFORE you go out and purchase NEW equipment, it is very important that you get skis and poles that fit your height and weight - otherwise you will be throwing your money away.

You need to have all your equipment (skis, poles, boots, clothing) by Monday, November 7th - we expect to get snow buy then and want to be ready!
Read Mandatory Equipment and Practice Requirements

ABSOLUTELY NO COTTON ANYTHING - socks, pants, shirts, jackets

Everyone must have their own kick wax for all temps and corks (for classic skiing)

Make sure you have glide wax on your skis on your first day of skiing! This is very important otherwise you will go nowhere and who wants to go nowhere?

Must Reads and Forms To Be Submitted

We couldn't supply ANY of this without the Booster Club Member/Team Fee. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!
