Waxing allows better glide and protects the base. The more you wax your skis, the better they will glide, whatever the conditions and the type of snow. Waxes come in different forms: liquids, solids, sprays and powders. Moreover, the more you maintain your equipment the longer it will last.
For a maximum grip, especially on ice snow, sharpen the edges of your skis. The edge is the steel part located on each side of the sole of the skis, allowing a catch of these in the snow. Well-sharpened and well-maintained edges allow to be more precise and enjoyable practicing.
Mix comfort and safety with a proper and versatile equipment. Your helmet, goggles, ski poles and clothing, are very important to enjoy your sport, especially in changing alpine environments. Enjoy and stay safe for yourself and others.
