Hot Box Services
We now offer hot boxing for skis. The Hot Box operates essentially like a convection oven, allowing for even heating, from tip to tail, over a specified duration of time. The slow heated wax is able to penetrate into the sintered structure of the polyethylene base material at safer temperatures (lower than a waxing iron).
Basic Treatment (Storage/Travel): $15
Recommended for all skis during summer storage or during travel to protect bases from physical damage and oxidation.
Includes iron application of low-melting temperature "warm" paraffin wax, followed by 2 hours at 55oC in the Hot Box. No scraping.
Full Treatment (2-step): $35
Recommended for all new skis and for the re-conditioning of used skis.
Includes application of low-melting temperature "warm" paraffin wax, followed by 6 hours at 50oC in the Hot Box. Cooled and scraped followed by an iron application of high-melting temperature "cold" paraffin wax. This application is cooled, scraped, and brushed.
Race Ready Treatment (3-step): $55
Recommended to get skis ready for race day glide wax application.
Includes the Full Treatment, with a final iron application of LF glide wax to closely match the wax temperature of race day. Scraped and brushed and ready for skier's application of HF wax.
