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


  • 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


Please leave your own skis or board 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.


Our clinics are taught by friendly MEC staffers who are ready to answer any questions and share all the stuff they love about being outside. Everyone’s welcome!
