So the pros are waxing before they slide? It doesn't look like most of the stuff is waxed, I think I have heard that some use a bit of snow or a small amount of ice. I may just have to give it a whirl and see what happens.
im sure they do something to the cement. A few clips in 1242 they have a little snow on it.. (boyd's segment)... Maybe ice, but most likely just lots of wax.. It's not like the pro's just go up to some cememnt 'slab' and just slide it.. They do something to make it a little smoother
Yeah, I've done one ledge and I didn't find that wax did much. Just get a big chunk of crusty snow and spread the little ice chunks over it, like a little here and there. Also, running an old ski or your friend's ski (when he's not looking) over the length of the ledge a bunch of times grinds out a lot of the roughness (at least on the ledge I did). Either that or you can catch an edge and die or stick to metal. Hope that helped.
