How to store downhill skis?

When you store downhill skis over a long period you should put a storage wax on. This is a special wax designed to keep the bases from drying out and cracking. A good place to store your skis would be a place that is cool and has a medium humidity. Too dry will dry out your skis. Dark is also good as bright sunlight can damage the graphics and will make the temperature rise and fall which will also damage your skis.


When hot waxing downhill skis can you apply a warmer temperature wax over a colder temperature wax?

Yes. You can also use a warm wax to remove other waxes or even dirt. Simply wax a warm wax on your skis and scrap the wax off while it is still molten. This is called hot scraping. So you can either hot scrap the colder wax out and then apply the warm wax, let it cool and scrap/brush, or you can just wax the warmer wax in.

Can you mix a regular wax and fluoro wax when waxing your skis?

Yes, but why would you? If a low fluoro wax is needed ... then use a low fuoro ... which is less expensive than mixing a non-fluoro one with a high fluoro one. I use the super expensive one's when racing, keep my race skis "prepped" with a high quality non-fluoro wax and only use the fluoro for a race. For my recreational skis they just have a quality non-fluoro wax on them.

Why do downhill ski racers wax their skis?

Waxing skis make your skis faster. You also want to have smooth bottoms on your skis. Smooth bottoms of your ski - It is CRITCIAL to avoid skiing over rocks, dirt, or anything that is not ice and snow. This can cause scratches, nicks, and divots in the bottom of your ski. You want the bottoms to be as smooth and scratch free if possible. The smoother they are, the more surface area touches the snow which allows you to ski faster. "Burrs" are what they call nicks on your edges and the bottom of your ski. Waxing your skis - This is usually done the night before a ski race. You melt wax over your skis with and then iron the wax over the skis. Ski wax comes in a variety of colors which are associated with different temperature ranges. The purpose of different wax for different temperatures is because the consistency of the snow changes with the temperature. The day of the race you scrape the wax off your skis. There will be some wax that still remains on the bottom and will quickly wear off. Consult a local ski shop for proper technique. Waxing also protects your skis. If you don't wax them, the bases can become oxidized.
