Save some bucks and learn how to treat your alpine skis or snowboard to a hot wax. It’s easier (and way less messy) than you might think, and you don’t need tons of equipment to DIY at home.

Skill level: beginner

Format: knowledge-based, small group class

You’ll learn

  • What you need to wax your own skis or board
  • How to clean your bases
  • How to apply wax (glide wax)
  • Tips to choose the right wax for the conditions

Important Notes

Please leave your own skis at home, where you can practice your new skills on them later. We’ll use demo skis and gear in class to show you how it’s done.
