Looking for Skate Ski Boots (45/46)

Recently moved to horseshoe bay and hoping to get into the Cypress XC and Skate Ski community. Looking for some used gear – especially Skate Ski Boots size 45 or 46. Found some used skis (NNN bindings) in the city – but struggling to find used boots. Thanks for the help!

Swapped Rossignol skate poles

Hi All,

It seems someone left their Rossignol XT 600 skate poles last weekend and took mine – clearly just packed up rather than used: Mine are 155cm or so (the ones left are 135cm or so), but more tellingly, mine have one black and one red basket!

I left the not-mine ones in the clubhouse with a note, so you can just swap and let me know via email.

Thanks, Arne


Lost: Madshus Nanosonic Skate Skis 195cm

Looking for my Madshus skis which I believe were taken by accident at the Tuesday night race on Hollyburn. They are 195 Nanosonic with Rottefella bindings. The flex is stiff or hard packed. Appreciate anyone keeping an eye out for them as I’m sure it was a complete accident.


2 Racing Suits

Two complete racing suits – tops and bottoms.

Both in good condition. $40 each obo.

One is small and would fit somebody in track attack.

The other suit is medium and would fit somebody in the race team.

Please email for pictures.


Looking for warm up suit size 8 or 9

We missed the warm-up suit ordering window, so I’m looking for a Hollyburn XC ski club warm up jacket and pants for a tall 8 year old – size 8 or 9.

We are up at Hollyburn on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights, in case that helps. Thanks!
