Waxing ski tops?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I did a search and didn't find much. But any good suggestions for waxing tops. I'm looking to decrease snow buildup.

For what purpose do you want to decrease snow build up?

   Use silicon spray. Works great!!! Spray it onto a rag first, then wipe it on...wink.gif

Are your skis cold when you take them out on snow for the first time?  I find that in the mornings after coming from a warm building snow/ice stays on my skis but after lunch when they are cold I have no issues.

I just seem to have tons of my snow when I get to the lift and I also find myself using one ski to put it off on the lift and feel like I am scratching them up.

 

I always drive at least 10 minutes with skis in thule box so I would say they are equal with outside temps when I strap them on.  I found a comment or two on car wax but always seems to find the answers on here but didnt see much on this topic.

   Try the silicone spray on a rag...it's fairly innocuous...

Any good liquid car wax will will do the job. Just be carefull not to get it on your bases. The wax\chemicals in most modern waxes will stop the absorption of ski wax into the bases. Don't forget to wipe down your sidewalls with a liquid ski wax.
