(sung to the tune 'Tis the Season to be Jolly')
The Mule and the Vegan Vagabond came over this afternoon to get a little clinic on waxing skis. This will be my fourth season waxing my own skis. I'm no pro, but I'm no pro skier either - so I don't get into the detailed waxing that one can do.
Waxing your own skis saves you a tonne of money. I'd also rather buy the supplies and do it myself than have someone do it for me. There is a science and/or art to waxing skis for different conditions: new snow, old snow, snow temperature, snow humidity, freshly groomed, not so freshly groomed, etc. I try and keep it simple and stick to the basics.
