KICK WAXING SERVICE: Worried that you don't know how to kick wax your skis? You coach isn't available to help? Never fear, Nonstop Nordic is here! We do not yet know the snow conditions. With the forecast of some new snow, it may be hard wax, not klister. We will have both ready to give you the "wax of the day."
We are limiting this to 8 Citizens, 15 Middle Schoolers, and 15 High Schoolers. First to fill out the form and pay, first serve.
For $8, we will kick wax your skis with the wax of the day. If this is a service you would like, please:

3) Make sure the kick zones of your classic skis are CLEAN. This means that the kick zone and sidewalls have no previous kick wax on them. (Use wax remover and putty knife scraper and a rag to remove old wax).
4)Mark your kick zones. We can guess, but if your kick zones are clearly marked, that gives you a better chance of getting a wax job that gives you both skis that kick well and glide well.
MASKS REQUIRED: Everyone on the Black Mountain premises must wear a mask at all times. This includes the entirety of the race. We suggest a plastic frame insert to give space between your mouth and your mask.
PARKING & SPECTATORS: There are no spectators allowed because of the Governor’s state gathering limits. Parents who are dropping off their skiers can drop off and then park in the lot, and please stay in your cars. Thank you for your cooperation so that we can continue to offer events.
BIB PICK UP & RETURN: Each racer will need to go to the registration building and confirm that they do not have any Covid-19 symptoms. They will then receive their race bib. After you finish, please deposit bib into the bucket before you leave the finish corral.
