The big event is next week. Get out and ski but take it easy–it’s too late to train hard. If, however, you need some last-minute supplies–wax, nutrition, socks without holes–swing by the shop and we will set you up. Check our website and social media feeds for Birkie wax recommendations and updates next week.
