First, I'd like to say I'm new to EpicSki, so forgive me if this post is in the wrong place.
I ended last season by bringing my (then) new skis into the shop for a hot wax. I didn't tell the shop guy to leave all the wax on, so I'm assuming he scraped and brushed. After this, I didn't ski at all. I stored my skis in my office, leaned against the wall (base out). Now that the season's about to start for me, I'm looking at my skis again and I've noticed white patches near the tip where the ski is the widest. This applies to both of my skis, though one has a significantly more pronounced patch. I distinctly remember the base being completely black at the end of last season.
So, does wax wear off over the summer? Should I apply a thicker coat at the end of a season?
Thanks for your comments and suggestions!
