New Ski Prep

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Does a brand new ski need any prep work before skiing on it (assume bindings already mounted and tested)? I seem to remember someone previously posting that a fresh coat of wax is all that's needed. Does it depend on the brand of ski? If so, is there anything in particular that needs to be done with Atomics since that's the ski I am going to be buying?

I know my answer was considered anal, but everybody who tried my skis was amazed by the glide. I am glad I hadn't read at the time that Swix recommends brushing with Fibertex 100 times in each direction *at least* [img]tongue.gif[/img] (yes, most probably for racing; still need to do it for my leisure skis, it has some benefits there too).

Prosper, if you have a true bar make sure they are flat. If not you need to tune them or have it done.

In my opinion, the brand of ski absolutely matters. Without throwing stones at any particular manufacturer; some skis consistently come out of the wrapper ready to ski, where others need quite a bit of TLC.

I can't speak to the factory tune Atomic applies to their skis these days, but I'm sure there are plenty of people here that can.
