I tune 4 sets of skis. K2 Recons, Elan Slalom Skis, Atomic Cloud 7 and Volkl Unlimited. The Volkls are 2010 version new at the end of last season, which were waxed for the summer and then re-waxed for the season and every 3 days. They are 140 CM. How come they are the only ones to get base burn? And so quickly?

At 140 they are kid's skis and probably use a cheaper base material than the other skis so they are not absorbing as much wax as the others. I am a routine waxer (2 days max) for my skis. But I stopped waxing a set of kids Atomic 140 (Race 6, Bode Miller) a year or 2 ago and did not see any noticeable impact. Now that they have been outgrown, I'll wax them before the fall ski swaps just for the cosmetic contribution to a sale.
