Cross Country Skiing — Waxing

Make sure your ski bases are completely clean and dry before waxing.

Waxing is easiest at room temperature. If you’re just coming in from outside, give them a chance to warm before waxing.

Choose 2 or 3 grip waxes that cover the range of temperatures you’re likely to ski, and stick with them until you’re familiar with each.

Optionally, for performance across a range of temperatures, consider a universal wax.
