Do you want your skis to be gliding fast on Saturday?

Larch Hills Junior Race Team athletes going to Nationals will once again be glide waxing skis at the RKS Loppet bib pick-up on Friday, January 24th from 4-7pm outside the SASCU recreation centre to help fund their ski competitions and training camps.  Bring your skis along and the ski team will provide expert waxing while you go inside to pick up your registration package.  YES LF wax will be used and will be applied in 10-15 minutes while you wait.  The team will also be selling bags of local DeMilles apples. We hope to see you there and thank you for your support.
