WAXING TIPS & F.A.Q.'s

Do brand new skis/snowboards need wax?
Yes, new skis/snowboards will be optimized with a hot wax application. Hot wax applied to new skis and snowboards will penetrate into the base creating an optimum surface. Wax application improves turning ability and speed and performance on the snow. The wax layer should be replenished frequently during the season.

Why do I need to apply wax to my skis/snowboard?
Bases of all skis (cross country / alpine) and snowboards are made of materials that absorb wax. The base is protected and enhanced by this thin layer of wax. The layer has to be applied to new skis and old skis and must be replaced over time to maintain optimum performance.

What does the wax do?
The thin layer of wax reduces friction. Friction is caused by the variable surface of the snow. Water also plays a significant role; water molecules surround the snow crystals and can create friction or suction on the ski or snowboard even when the temperature is below freezing.

Are there different types of wax?
Yes, glide wax options are available for variable temperatures and humidity conditions. The Bay Nordic wax technicians are applying a general purpose hot wax option in the waxing area for skis and snowboards.

Do I need to apply wax to my "non-waxable" cross country skis?
Yes, the non-waxable cross country ski refers to the "kick area" of the ski. This area typically has a rough or "fish scale" pattern directly under the binding area. This area provides the grip to move through the snow. It is important however to optimize the glide areas as well (tip and tail ends of the ski) with a wax application to improve glide and speed.
