I have never tried waxing, I just stick to my skins, but it always amazes me when I do see waxers up there in the same places. I don't see them often, but I think I recall seeing them on zimmerman lake for sure, and either monty bowl, or butler gulch, maybe both.

Props to the waxers, I don't have those skills.

When I worked there we a great selection of tele and AT gear, but no classic or skate nordic gear. If it is still like that then criticizing their staff for lack of knowledge about waxing is like dogging the folks at a nordic center for not knowing which Dynafit binding has the highest DIN setting.

In 2 years of working there I never had any questions about waxing (other than glide waxing), but perhaps I missed them and the former nordic ski racers on the staff at the time answered them.

Ditto Swix. Ditto skins for some situations. You might also see if you can befriend a Nordic coach at one of the colleges. Some of them probably know a lot about waxing besides just for racing. HTH
