There are a few steps to go through when you are going to hot wax your skis. First there are a few items that you will need.
A waxing iron is preferred as this does not have holes in the base as a clothes iron would, which will prevent the wax from burning.
These irons will cost around $50 and up. You can use an OLD clothes iron if you wish just be sure to keep it on a low temperature.
You will need to have a hot glide wax. These are sold in various temperature ranges and various qualities.
Universal temperature ranges are available as well.
Same scraper that you would use to scrape your kick or grip wax off. Use a plastic scraper to prevent damage to the base of your skis.
Your hair brush won't cut it for this one. Get a nylon or natural brush for skis, usually a hard or universal brush will work well and quickly.
These will cost you anywhere from $10 and up. Softer brushes are available and are a little kinder to your bases but require several more passes.
If you do not have a ski wax bench they are sold at around $100 and up, or if your handy there are websites out there that will show you how to make a low budget wax bench.
And if your like many of us, especially us old school people you won't need one and can get by without one for now.
It is recommended to use a wax remover to clean your base prior to waxing.
You are now ready to hit the trails and experience fantastic glide also you should be a little bit faster than you were at first.
