After your grind, or whatever you do to get your bases ready for a new year on the snow, how many wax cycles do you go through before you ski?

Pole is flawed........
Skis were stored with a nice coat of wax and kept in a dust free environment, so I could actually ski them as is but....all our skis get one cycle of hot-boxing per season. The race skis then get a wax of the day, one ironing.
Do you have any base work done on your skis between seasons, or do you just see that your structure is still there and call it good? I generally have my base structure refreshed (stone ground) once a season, at the beginning. If I don't grind my skis then I just scrape off the summer coating, brush, buff and go... but if they DO get ground, then I layer it on. I've been doing 3-5 cycles post grind depending on the ski. (More for carvers, less for fatties...) New skis, like the BROS that are on their way, may get closer to 10 cycles depending on how long I have them in my basement before I can ski them!
