After probably a decade of skiing on used skis and rentals, I finally purchased some new skis ('16 Blizzard Bonafide). The guy at the store said not to touch them because this is the "best they'll ever be" in terms of wax and edges. I'm fine with the edges, I believe they come from the factory at 1/3 but in any case when I demo'd them whatever the factory set it at worked great for me. But I do want to wax them, mainly because they'll be in storage in a high humid environment (unavoidable).
Is the salesman telling the truth or just blowing smoke? I want to put a thick coat of wax on them to keep the edges from rusting. Is this a good idea? Anything else I can do?
