NEW! Heat Box Waxing Services

Basic Saturation $30
Basic Saturation involves 6 hours in the heat box with a very soft paraffin at a
temperature of ~55°C. Such a temperature ensures excellent saturation of the base. The
skis will still need to be hardened to the appropriate level for the desired conditions.
Ultimate Saturation $45
The Ultimate Saturation Heat Box is the ultimate base treatment. It starts by applying a
very soft paraffin heat box wax and letting it saturate in the hot box for a full twelve
hours at below 50°C. A finishing layer of Swix LF-6 is then added to harden the base.
This same process has been used at the World Cup for years to get skis to run at their
absolute optimum speed.

Additional Waxing Services:
1. Cleaning $5 A hot wax scrape to get all dirt out of the base.
2. Standard Universal Hot Wax $15 The appropriate glide wax is melted
onto the glide zones of the ski base, ironed onto the base, cooled, acrylic-scraped,
brushed and polished.
3. Low Fluo Hot Wax $20 Same as standard, but a faster wax.
4. New ski base prep $50 New skis need a lot of work to get you skiing fast.
This service includes cleaning all debris out of skis (hot scrape), Fibretex-brushing to cut
all micro hairs out of the skis + Ultimate Heat Box.
