Wax on…

Ski & Snow - - Technical Feature -

Plug in the iron and set it to a fairly low heat. The wax should melt eas­ily but shouldn’t smoke; if it does the iron is too hot. Hold the iron with the pointed end fac­ing down and drip wax evenly over the base. (Pic 2) You want enough wax on there to cover the base, but don’t go over­board – it’s more to scrape off. Gen­er­ally the edges are the most im­por­tant. Now run the iron over the wax so it melts and is ab­sorbed into the base. Keep the iron mov­ing - you can dam­age the base if you leave it in one spot for too long. (Pic 3) Do both skis and leave un­til they’re cool to the touch – about 30 min­utes.
