How Much Wax do I Need?

How much wax do I need?

It usually takes about 15 – 20 grams to hot wax one pair of skis or one snowboard, therefore a 110 gram block should last approximately 5-6 services.

 Rub on wax provides many more applications on a per gram basis (approximately double), however it will wear off significantly faster.

How Often Should I Wax?

How often should I wax?

Really it depends what you are doing.  Normal holiday skiing on decent snow - about once every 3 or 4 days,  on a BASI course - every day,  racing - every run.

Certainly as minimum we would recommend that you check your bases and edges after each trip. This also means that you are ready to go for your next trip!

However the more often you wax the better performance you will get, so the more enjoyment you will have from your sport.  If you can wax at least every couple of days during your trip that’s even better!
If you are going on holiday and space (or weight) is limited in your luggage then consider packing some Superslip, an Alpine Rub On or some Fast Wipe Sachets!
