Waxing your Skis and Boards
Regularly waxing your skis or snowboard is the easiest thing you can do to keep your gear in good condition and guarantee the best time out on the snow. While it’s a good idea to invest in a professional tune-up at the start of the season and during winter (say every five full riding days), it’s really simple to learn how to hot wax your skis at home and save some hard earned cash. All of the items you need can be bought from your local ski shop and some you’ll already have at home. The info below has some points specific for skis, but the basic principles apply for waxing snowboards too.
