Ask Tim: Summer Prep for your Skis?

In a new series, you can ask Coach Tim your deepest questions.

My friend tells me that we should apply hot Wax to ski base without scraping it off for off season.  Good idea or just plain stupid?

Coach Tim answers:
For skate skis, apply glide wax and leave it on for the summer.  This will protect the base.  For classic skis, clean off the grip wax and keep the grip area void of any wax.  Just leave glide wax on the glide area.
