From Wednesday, March 6 to Wednesday, March 20 inclusive, I am prepared to grind skis on
I am very much looking forward to this event. I plan on being at the site, even if only briefly, for each day of the competition.
Good Luck to all,
Grind of your choice, saturate the bases, harden the bases with a hard green LF wax, scrape and polish the bases:
I will apply a HF glide wax of the day for an extra $20.
Recommended grinds for the Loppet:
The best all-round grinds are the CJ2 for skate skis and XT2 for classic skis. They work very well most of the time.
If the forecast ends up being correct, these will be the appropriate grinds.
Next week, I will pick up skis on Wednesday, Feb 13 from Euro-sports and the Cyclery, just after NOON time.
I will grind/wax these skis and have the skis back in the stores by Thursday, Feb. 14 at 4 pm.
If you prefer, you can bring your skis to my shop in Wakefield. This year, there are no retail booths at the CJEP. I believe they do not have use of the large gym. As a result, I do not have access to a drop off location for skis. I am willing to grind and wax skis up until Saturday morning, but I can only do this for people who can pick their skis up at our workshop in Wakefield.
Good luck at the races,
