Mail for help.Help!!

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 :-)
Remember me:
👁 durr, I forgot...

Novice waxer with new skis

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I've just bought my first pair of skis and hoping for some advice about waxing/servicing my skis.
I'd like to be able to wax them myself and have been reading up on it, but it seems a bit complicated for a novice. I'm heading to Canada for a two week ski trip soon, so conditions are going to be cold (minus 10 or worse) which might affect which type of wax i use. It sounds like glide wax is the best option, but wondering if anyone can recommend a wax that is easy to apply. Or am i best to get a professional hot wax? Also, how often should they be waxed if I'm skiing every day?

Any advice appreciated!

@Gavmcg, it's not complicated to do, but it is perfectly possible to damage your skis (or your health) due to ignorance. If you've been reading up on it then you might have come across @spyderjon's tuning guide on the, and he also offers a tuning course which is much recommended here.
