HP ski waxing service – We want your feedback!

Every year, the Yellowknife Ski Club’s high-performance program puts on a waxing service during the Snow Show and Wax & Wine where HP skiers wax skis for $25/pair. In recent years this service has been extended to include other stand-alone waxing days during the year. This is an important fundraiser for our skiers and they want to ensure they are providing a quality service that meets the needs of our community.
Whether you have had your skis waxed by the HP skiers or not, they are interested in your feedback! Please take this short survey:
 https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/L7HHNX3 before April 30, 2023.
Thanks for taking the time!
