Preparation and care of your skis doesn't need to be time consuming! In this section, we show you how to effectively and easily prepare your equipment in just a few steps.

Crayoning ~ simply crayon on the glide wax of the day.

Iron ~ gently heated it with an iron till it barely melted

Cork ~ while the ski is still warm rub the wax in with a cork covered with fiberlene.

Brush ~ when the skis cooled, which was almost immediately, quickly brushed off any excess wax remaining on the surface , which is miniscule.  Anything visible will slow your skis.

For training purposes, just changing just the top layer of wax is all that is needed. For racing you may want to apply a couple of layers in addition to the higher end fluoros .

Use this method often to keep the skis well impregnated with wax. This method is quick, simple, and not at all messy (note, there is no scrapping).

Choosing the dayís glide wax. Although there are many manufacturers of wax SWIX and TOKO are common in the area. Both offer suggested waxing combinations for various events. Even if you are not racing they are worth taking a look at as you can gleam information from the reports for the weekend conditions.

As you get more experience skiing, you will get a good feel for which waxes works for you. But Iíve found that you canít go far off just following the manufacturersí recommendations, which are readily available online.

There are two great web services suggesting waxing.
