Odds and Ends

  • Put your name on all of your equipment.  All equipment looks alike and people grab the wrong stuff by mistake.  It is nearly impossible to  correct this. Take a picture of the numbers on boots, poles and skis. 

    1. The below link is what the ski jacket will look like-the cost is $105.  The orders will go in on November 26th Nordic Ski Jacket Look. When you open the form it say's money due the 20th.  It is due the 26th.

     2. To change ferrules-place in hot/boiling water long enough to loosen the glue.  Try to keep as much of the glue on the poles as you can. Have your snow baskets ready to place on.  Make sure the baskets face the correct way.  If you aren't sure, compare them to the other poles you have.  Place the handgrips the same direction then you will see the direction the new baskets should go on.  If you have a glue gun at home use this to aide the grip better.

     3. I will try to get an e-mail list going again just in case...but anything I send by e-mail would be on the web page.  If you want to be on the e-mail list send me an e-mail to
