The S2S event chose KidSport as our charitable partner to help all children have access to sport. In the first year, the participants and volunteers were able to raise $5,000. SilverStar Mountain Resort added $2,500 and then the silent auction of items donated by our sponsors raised another $500, for a total of $8,000.
The Winning Grip Wax
Some participants found grip waxing was tricky on Saturday with random snow flurries throughout the day. So what worked?
Skin skis were very popular, as many participants use skin skis every day. A few skiers did learn that skins need periodical cleaning and treated to avoid icing up in fresh snow.
For skiers who chose waxable skis, the winning choice was Swix VR45 covered with Swix VR30.
Another successful option was Rode B17, usually over a binder.
Andy Newell (Bridger Ski Foundation head coach, owner of Nordic Team Solutions, and former Olympian) explains his decision making in the video, before demonstrating both good grip and glide 22km into the course on his way to 4th place overall.
