Description:

Did someone say beveragino? (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lNFJYBVuimU)  

It's Whistler opening weekend and I'm sure we're all stoked to get out, but I'm also sure that I'm not the only one who's bases need some help so let's fix up our skis in the clubroom. We can all get our skis ready for the start of the season and maybe even make some new friends to ski with this year. 

Tons of people were really interested in learning to care for skis at Jacob's hot coffee and hot wax workhike the other day, so my plan is to do something like that, but with our own skis this time. If you don't know how to wax your own skis, bring them, and I can teach you! If you do already know how, come hangout, teach some people, and make some new friends. There is everything needed to wax skis, as well as some p-tex for base repairs, in the clubroom, just make sure to bring $2 per pair of skis to put in the jar so we can keep buying more wax.

I'm happy to assist with waxing, p-tex, and anything else that needs to be done, and share what I've done with my own skis, but am by no means a professional, so take my advice at the risk of your skis.
