Want to know more about ski waxing?

Are you new to the sport of cross country skiing and puzzled by all the ‘waxing’ talk? No need to be intimidated, SSA Cross Country are offering a beginners waxing workshop to help demystify glide and classic waxing.


Taking care of your cross country skis involves more than just making sure they have a safe ride to and from the snow. To get a good life span out of a pair of skis the bases need to be maintained through regular cleaning and waxing. Knowing what to use and when takes time and experience but there are a few really easy tips you can follow to help get the best out of your skis during the Australian winter.

This 2- 3hr work shop will take you through the basics of different types of low and high fluoro waxes, which brushes to use and when, and the main kick waxes you should have in your wax box and how to apply them. You’ll come away with some easy to follow notes and a bonus beginners waxing kit generously supplied by Eastern Mountain Centre!

  1. Seems there was a mix up with the date. Got there on Wednesday night and was told the clinic was on the Tuesday not the Wednesday. Will they be running another clinic?

    • Hi Denis, sorry about the mix up. We had hoped to run another workshop in Melbourne before the ski season but were unable to secure a location. There will be workshops run at Falls Creek. Watch the AUSXC site for details.
