About Waxing & Edging

There is no such thing as over waxing. Wax makes your skis hydrophobic, afraid of water basically. The more hydrophobic your skis are the faster they will be, it also makes them a lot easier to turn. If skis lack wax they can have a harder time getting up on edge. Unfortunately wax doesn't last long due to it being on the contact point of the skis. No matter who you are, out on the hill you shouldn't go longer than 6-8 days without a tune.

Base edge beveling is lifting the edges off the snow a slight amount (.5°-1°) so they won't engage until the ski is tilted on edge. Too little base edge bevel causes a ski to hook before the skier is ready & excessive base edge bevel creates instability as the edges are raised too far off the snow. Side edge bevels are commonly(1°-3°) with the high number indicating a more acute angle to penetrate farther into hard snow. Too little side edge bevel can cause a ski to skid and too acute a bevel can cause the edge to knife into the snow and "rail".

  A fine edge is finished with diamond files to insure that your edges are well kept & even leaves no strations for a very fine polish edge.

It is very important to remove the sidewall material to keep the sidewall from interfering with the bevel on the edges. Which can affect your control.
