Description:

Ever wondered how to maintain your own skis? Do you want to give back to the club or contribute your workhike hours? Your quartermasters need your help! The VOC has the largest telemark ski fleet of BC, and it sees a lot of (ab)use. 

Come to the clubroom on Wednesday to help fix the fleet. Things we will be doing include dewaxing, ptex-ing (filling holes), waxing, scrapping wax, fixing bindings, and checking the overall state of boots, poles and skis. 

A handful of us will be showing you how to do it. No prior knowledge is required, but if you feel so inclined to learn, check out the below links:
