Ncaron1018I bought new skis and rode on the factory tune for a few days, the bases turned white and really slow , brought them to a ski shop to get belt sanded and waxed. Got them back and skied for 5 more days they became more white and slow than ever before , what do I need to fix this problem? Please help!
As others have said, most likely your bases are extruded and dried out. However, just waxing you skis may not work fully. It depends on the extent of how dried out your bases are. If the bases are just starting to turn white and crusty, a good wax job will do the trick, but if your bases are almost fully white and seems extra dry, then you probably want to get a base grind before you wax your skis.
A base grind will sand off the dried layer of the base, this will give your bases a brand new rejuvenated look, and your bases will be able to absorb wax once again.
*Completely dried out bases will barely hold any wax.*
Post a picture if you are unsure on how bad they are, and I'm sure myself or someone else can let you know if you need a base grind.
