Events News January 19, 2017

Athletes, coaches, parents & wax technicians please be aware of the following Low-Fluoro Glide Waxing Protocol effective immediately:


January 9, 2017

CCSAM respectfully requests ALL athletes, coaches, wax technicians and parents to abide by a self-governed protocol while waxing skis for all CCSAM-sanctioned events.

This protocol applies to ALL local, regional and provincial events taking place in Manitoba (e.g. club races including Wed Night Series, Manitoba Cup races, Manitoba Provincial Championships and the MB Winter Games).

This protocol is applicable to JUNIOR WOMAN/MAN & YOUNGER race categories in the 2016-2017 competition season and will apply to ALL age/race categories beginning with the 2017-2018 competition season and thereafter.

This protocol also applies to ALL athletes traveling to Manitoba from out-of-province or out-of-country.

Low-fluoro glide waxing protocol:

  • Non-Fluoro (NF) or Low Fluoro (LF) glide waxes ARE permitted
  • Medium Fluoro (MF) or High Fluoro (HF) glide waxes are NOT permitted
  • Pure Fluoro glide waxes (powders, pucks, blocks and liquid) are NOT permitted
  • Cold weather powder additives and hardeners are NOT permitted
  • Structure tools ARE permitted


The adherence to this protocol is self-governed and is the responsibility of the athletes, coaches, parents and wax technicians.
