Wax Restrictions and Recommendations
Per PNSA rules all skiers agree to use a non-fluorinated glide wax which will be announced by the race organizer.
The glide wax for the 2024 Mt. Spokane Nordic Cup (U16 and older NRL races) will be:
Saturday - HS7
Sunday - HS8
All other categories are also required to use non-fluorinated products and we expect all racers to stick to basic level products such as the Swix HS or PS (formerly CH) line or equivalent.
No fluorinated products are allowed in grip wax products (hard wax, klister, covers, etc.). For more information on the fluorocarbon ban – including a list of non-fluorinated kick waxes and klisters – visit the US Skiing page on the subject.
If it is discovered that fluorinated products have been applied to an athlete’s skis (whether known or unknown to the athlete), the athlete will be subject to disciplinary action from US Ski and Snowboard.
