1. Clean Your Base!
Apply base cleaner with a fiberlene cloth and thoroughly clean to get all the glidewax off the tip and tail. For fish-scale skis, clean them with the same method as the tip and tail to clean all the dirt that may have built up over the season. For waxless skis, scrape off the Klister using wax remover and a cloth to take the stickiness off. You will not be applying glidewax on the kickzone for your classic skis.
Apply base cleaner with the fiberlene cloth over the entire ski, removing any dirt, particles and old wax that may have built up over the year.
2. Apply the Wax
The ideal way to apply storage wax, is to use the hot iron to use a warm hot wax all over the ski. Melt your wax over the ski (only the tip and tail for classic skis) at the correct temperature. Then, take your iron over the glidewax and wait until it hardens. You are almost there!
3. Store in a Safe Place
There is no need to scrape the glidewax, as this will serve as the protection for your skis while in storage. Either vertically or horizontally, make sure the skis are nice and cozy until you can take them out again.
