For classic binder wax customers, please mark your kick zone. If you are unsure, please indicate your weight and experience in detail in the 'comments' field when ordering wax service; we'll help you determine your kick zone. Classic skiers will need apply their final kick wax and carry a back-up kick wax or two and a cork during the race to accommodate changing conditions or if more kick is needed. We'll provide detailed recommendations for back-up waxes and wax experts will be on-hand at New Moon Thursday and Friday before Birkie to assist with technical questions. In addition, kick wax supplies can be found at Birkie and Korte food stations.
