Equipment requirements:
1. Nordic skis, boots and poles
    Team A)  Will train for both techniques in the Nordic world. Classic and Skate.  A pair of skis for each technique.  
     Team B) Will concentrate on Classic Skiing.  Only one pair of skis needed.

Highly Suggested!  Ski bag that holds all your skis, and poles.

   Check with Cross Country Connection our local outlet for equipment for rentals.   Bindings on skis are not universal fit. Make sure your boots are the right system for your skis. Try them in the store before getting them to the trails.

Put your name on all your equipment!

2.   Winter clothing
      A quick lesson in how to dress for success...
       - layers, layers, layers... Bottom layer of wicking (Under Armor, Columbia, Mountain Hardware, etc. ) long underwear, tops and bottoms. Ski tights or lightweight fleece pants, lightweight fleece top, wind pants and jacket.  Reserve the heavy jacket for the bus.  Hat and gloves. Cotton sweat pants and sweat shirts, jeans etc. soak up water and do not dry. They are not safe in cold conditions. Cotton kills.  Show up to practice in these and you will not be allowed off the bus.  Hat, gloves or mittens, and a buff. 

The coaches do not have a supply of extra hats and gloves. You must be responsible for your own.  You will be asked to not ski if you do not have proper warm gear!

3. Water bottle and somehow to carry it.  Hydration packs with tubes freeze if not worn under a jacket.

4. The team will provide all waxing equipment required to maintain skis.
