TAKE CARE OF YOUR SKIS
Always apply wax to the base of your skis at the beginning of each season. During the skiing season, you should apply a new coat from time to time. When the season is over, it is also advised that you apply a new coat of wax for protection.
How often you should wax your skis during the season depends on different factors, but if you start to feel that the gliding properties are deteriorating, or if you can see that the base is getting visibly drier, it’s time to apply new wax.
Some ski waxes are made to perform best in specific temperature ranges, and if the temperature changes drastically, you may also need to apply a new ski wax that suits the weather.
