Cross-Country Ski Waxing

All Nordic skis need a regular wax treatment of some kind or another. Yes, even waxless. It's the ski base materials and how they were formed that determine what waxing treatment makes the most sense for your skis. We service all Nordic skis from new race ski base prep to old touring ski rejuvenation. Bring your skis to us for glide waxing for skate or classic, brand new ski base prep, kick wax application, waxless ski icing preventative, or summer storage waxing.

Hot Box Service

Glide waxing Nordic skis in our Hot Box is our preferred method of getting wax into the bases of your 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). It takes longer but we feel it is worth it. When you are in a rush, and if we aren't too busy, we will skip the Hot Box and wax your skis using a digital iron. But please allow at least an hour.

Saturation Service $25 

This wax option is recommended for all new skis as well as skis that have had 150km skied on them. We will use warm wax, ironing or heatboxing based on what works best for the skis followed by scraping and brushing them.

Full Treatment (Saturation & Race Hardening)- $50

We strongly recommend this wax option for new skis and best performance. It includes a warm wax saturation followed by a cold hardening procedure and finished with an appropriate wax for the day.

Race Ready Treatment (Multi-step process) $80 -

 We recommended this treatment to get skis ready for race day. This option includes the Full Treatment, with no holds barred condition specific waxing.
