“Sunday Session (12)”: Update – More Skate Than Classic

Hello Jackrabbit Managers,

Apologies for the update.

For the older and/or more experienced kids who will be venturing beyond The Hummocks tomorrow, bring their skate skis.  If they don’t have skate skis, bring their classic skis, but in the warmth of your home, simply scrape off the grip wax found in the middle third of their classic skis, and smooth the remaining grip wax down using a ski waxing cork.  The goal is to have slippery skis not slippery-and-grippy skis.

Sorry for the confusion.

Due to the difference between”as planned for” and “as actually implemented”, a few-minutes-old update from Jeff Hampshire has now indicated that all ski trails at Assiniboine Park will indeed be fabulously mechanically groomed for just skate technique for tomorrow’s session.  However, only the The Hummocks will be groomed for both skate and classic technique (where grip wax is an asset not a liability).
