Waxing and caring for extruded bases

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I bought a pair of skis with extruded bases last season. I ski them mostly early and late season and in the park. I have waxed them frequently but they don't seem to hold wax at all and are very slow after an hour or two of skiing. Also the bases got pretty dinged up in some high speed switch carving when I hit a rock. I am going to take them in for a base grind to try to get them back to level. What should I know about waxing and caring for bases on extruded skis?

 I'm not so sure I would even bother waxing extruded bases.   Doesn't seem worth the effort.

Lemon Pledge or Pam. Both work well. :D

Keep the edges sharp, trim major damage, fill any core shots, wipe daily with paste wax.
