Waxing improves gliding by smoothing the structural defects of the ski sole. It gives back to the sole its original structure. A white sole is the equivalent of a sole abraded by friction and is therefore “fluffy” at the microscopic level. Waxing also helps to protect the sole from inevitable micro-aggressions (roots, small rocks etc.), which, by attacking the wax preserve the sole.
How to wax? The most effective waxing is done with a waxing iron, which allows the wax to penetrate deeper into the sole. This is a delicate operation, since the temperature must not exceed 110 ° to avoid irretrievably destroying the sole. Entrust your waxing to a pro such as Mountain Story technicians, and let the iron from home to the shirts!
Waxing is recommended at least once per season. But ideally, a cold waxing, according to daytime snow temperatures should be done daily.
