Want Faster Skis?

The Kangaroo Hoppet Waxing Fundraiser has been contributing $4,000+ towards XC Ski Team athlete expenses for over a decade. All funds go into the XC Towards 2026 pool, that is predominantly used to pay for athlete accommodation and transport expenses at major events such as World Championships, World Cups, and World Junior/U23 Championships.
