Preparing your skis:
Ideally, your skis already have a layer of summer storage wax on them from the spring. This protective layer serves the purpose of protecting them from damage while in the garage, basement, or shed. It also helps to seal in moisture and prevents bases from drying out. To have your skis ready to go when the trails open, you’ll need to scrape this layer off, brush, and apply a layer or two of fresh glide wax that matches what you expect early season conditions to be. After scraping and brushing the fresh glide wax, you are ready to go.
