Mission Statement: NENSA is committed to making safe and supportive competitive events for all cross country skiers.
As of June 15th, 2020 all NENSA sanctioned events will abide by U.S. Ski & Snowboard and FIS guidelines and be fluoro free (see link directly below). Due to the pandemic climate and the continued development of fluoro detection equipment there will be limited physical regulation possible this season. We respectfully ask of our competitors and technicians that they comply with the spirit of this regulation which is intended to protect the health of our environment and community.
US Ski & Snowboard Policy (Updated June 15, 2020)
- Simplify your wax boxes – learn a brand(s) and trust your process. Add complexity as you see fit and that your staff can handle without limiting coaching interaction. New fluoro free products are already available to the public and developing quickly.
- Wear a respirator or at least a dust mask whenever you are glide waxing: If you are working with any type of glide wax, there are likely fumes and particulates in the air that you do not want in your lungs. Even when scraping and brushing, wear a dust mask to protect your airways.
- Collect your wax shavings and contain your dust: Wax waste must be collected in waste containers and disposed of in waste containers properly. All waste material should be disposed of in waste containers on site. Do not brush your wax scrapings on the ground.
