Forget to put a layer of wax on the skis over the summer? Looking for a new pair of gloves, a new ski jacket or a great holiday gift for someone? This weekend, Tahoe Donner Cross Country will be holding a two-day only pre-season waxing and apparel sale!
Saturday, Nov. 30, and Sunday, Dec. 1, Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Center will be offering up to 50 percent off all retail each day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. With arguably the largest retail selection to date, Tahoe Donner Cross Country Center’s major soft wear suppliers include top ski and apparel purveyors, Swix, Sugoi, SportHill, Kuhl, Sherpa and Smartwool. The retail selection is rounded out by hats and gloves from Toko, Pistol and Dohn as well as a broad selection of glide and hard waxes.
Don’t forget to bring skis and relieve bases from their summer neglect! All skis, classic, skating and even “waxless,” need base wax to keep them gliding and turning smoothly. When skis are left without a coat of wax over the summer, they tend to take on a spotty, white appearance indicating oxidation. Gliding on oxidized skis takes more effort as the bases tend to grasp the snow, creating more friction and impeding the forward motion that we all love so much.
It’s not too late to get those skis back to top condition as Tahoe Donner Cross Country will also be offering 20 percent off waxing services this weekend. All waxing will be performed by highly experienced, elite level racers. A basic cleaning service includes a hot wax, which will not only revive the ski, but clean out any end of the season dirty snow that has become embedded in the bases. Another layer of wax will be added to make the first ski of the year a little more effortless than normal.
Start the season off right and head up to the Tahoe Donner Cross Country Ski Center to get equipped and prepared for a great season at a great cost!
