Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Have just gone to wax the family’s gloves ahead of Saturday’s departure to discover that there is only a smidgen left of Hestra’s protective wax in tin and none can be delivered ahead of time...what else might I use? Merry Christmas snowHead

The family should really be using ear wax on their own gloves. That's where the saying comes from...

I don’t know where you are heading but in Val d’Isere a few ski hire shops sell small sachets of Hestra wax at the till.

Tigski uses Mrs Tigskis handbag cream, but don't tell her!

I got leather balm from a specialist leather shop. 5 quid for a bottle that looks like its going to last 3 lifetimes.

I used nikwax aqueous wax on mine, liquid stuff that soaks in. Works well and doesn't preclude using other stuff later .

Good grief .... no spare pot! What kind of skier are you?

In fact, you could use furniture polish...seriously. We use the Hestra wax a lot, but in extremis use anything with silicon or beeswax in it ...

Just some of their spring gloves, my lad seems to have lost my 30 year old favourites so will be interested to try these.

Just topped up my hestra balm supply here in Norway as junior has managed to almost soak his gloves 'morning's in the snow on walk back to hotel. Still my hands are never sorted after waxing the gloves!
