Your skis are a very important part of your skiing equipment and if you look after them well they will see you through years of fun on the slopes. Whilst you can pay others to maintain your skis for you, learning how to do it yourself is always handy and it teaches you a bit about your equipment too.
If you are coming to the Chill Factore to ski and don’t have your own gear, it’s not a problem. The rental of high quality skis and boots is included in the price. And if you are looking to get some of your own we have a whole indoor street full of shops to choose from.
How often you should wax your skis depends on so many variables it’s impossible to say: the kind of snow, how much skiing you do, the type of wax you use, the kind of skiing you do. Some hard core waxers will do it every time they take their skis out and others just once every months worth of skiing.
The general rule is that if your skis start to feel sticky and slow as you are skiing or if you can visibly see that the bases are getting dry then give them a wax. If you only go skiing once or twice a year with them, then get them done or do them yourself each time you go away.
If you are buying new skis you absolutely must wax them before you use them: the manufacturer’s wax is there to protect them in storage not to protect them on the slopes.
Before you can start to wax your skis you will need some essential equipment, like wax for example.
Now that your skis are ready to go why not bring them down to Chill Factore and give them a whirl? We are open 7 days a week and have lessons for all standards for skiers from absolute beginners through to intermediate and advanced and we are the proud owners of the UK’s longest indoor real snow freestyle park.
