Glenn Jobe


The location of this Saturday’s Far West Nordic Wax Clinic has been moved to Auburn Ski Club in the green “wax bubble” building behind the main lodge. We’re getting considerable interest in this clinic, and this new venue will be able to accommodate a larger group. With the additional space, we will not be limiting attendance. We still encourage you to sign-up in advance, but walk-ins are more than welcome, so invite your friends! A special thanks to Auburn Ski Club for accommodating the last minute schedule change. See you on Saturday!

Far West Nordic Wax Clinic
December 11, 2010 at Auburn Ski Club
For the first time, Far West Nordic is conducting a comprehensive waxing clinic.  The clinic will be conducted by two of the area’s foremost wax gurus:  Glenn Jobe and Ralph Johnson.
Glenn and Ralph have decades of experience testing various kick and glide wax products from most manufacturers. The Tahoe area experiences challenging waxing conditions due to wide fluctuations in temperature, humidity, and the water content of the snow not only during the course of a season, but during the course of an individual race. From dealing with these challenging conditions, Glenn and Ralph have found that the products of some wax manufacturers work well in certain conditions, while the products of other wax companies work best in other conditions. Their learnings will be shared as well as their know how of how best to apply which types of waxes and how to decide which base structure is best under which conditions. The clinic will cover both kick and glide waxing, but there will be somewhat more focus on kick waxing.
