Waxing your skis or boards can seem like a messy, daunting, and mysterious process that requires expensive equipment. While ski waxing can indeed be a fine art, it can also be as easy as you want it to be. Start basic and go from there. For many skiers and boarders, gaining confidence with waxing is an important and satisfying part of the sport.

The goal of this clinic is to demonstrate that waxing and maintaining your bases can be done with a few simple tools and inexpensive materials, and can take only a few minutes! As with any sport, you can spend a lot of time and money on advanced waxing techniques and equipment. But, our goal today is that you walk away from this clinic with the knowledge to get you waxing your skis & boards simply, effectively and affordably.

  • Cleaning your bases
  • Applying glide wax
  • Tips for selecting appropriate waxes to match conditions

Led by MEC staff.
