SKI Conditions

Spring has sprung! (Sadly): 21 March 2019
The snow is getting really thin and mushy.
Choose your tracks carefully! Check some of the less travelled trails.

Waxing

and it will stay that way all day.
(**See Note below)
Skate-Skis
Minimal waxing required: Apply hot and scrape
Use Hard wax (eg. green: ie Start Arctic, Toko Nordline,Swix HF4X)
Waxless (Fish-Scale) Skis
Occasionally: Same as above, but only on tips and tails. Alternately apply SWIX Easy-glide to the whole ski if snow is sticking.
Waxable (Flat P-Tex Base) Skis
Glide Wax (Tips and Tails) Same as above.
Grip Wax (30" from the heel forward):
Is there really any snow out there ?.
Wood (with Lignastone edges) Skis
as above, but over pine-tar or equal base layer

**Note:Unless you are a serious racer, waxing should not be an intimidating ritual. Focus on the 'Grip' wax under the middle part of th ski: Start with a harder wax, and if you find yourself back-slipping, add a softer wax as required as the snow warms up.    Smooth it out by rubbing down   the ski with the cork from your wine bottle.    (It is OK to add a softer wax over the harder one, but doing the opposite may be difficult.)
