For those of you who actually tune and or wax your skis for ultimate performance and steeze, here is how to make a hot box for waxing your skis without anything...... almost. Instead of using high tech racing hotbox systems that would be very hard to find, and if you did find a place that has a hotbox they would laugh at you for wanting to do this to your very steezy stix. First lets start of with what a hotbox is and how it compares to traditional waxing.
A hotbox is a place you put your allready waxed skis that have not been scraped yet to help them absorb the maximum amount of wax for best and longest amount of time inbetween waxings. The key to a hot box is getting hot enough to make the wax a liquid but not to hot to delaminate your skis.
What you will need:
-car that you can lay your skis down flat in
-hot summer weather
-sunny place to park your car
How to set it up:
-wax you stix with a thick coat of warm temp wax
-lay skis in car so the bases are facing up
-make sure there is nothing that could be ruined from dripping wax
-park car in sunny place
-make sure windows are all rolled up
-wait....all day or 2 days or 3
-when there is barley any wax left on your skis re-apply new wax and repeat
after a few hours you can check on your babies and see the liquidy wax impregnating your skis
This process is great for new skis. Even though they come with factory wax hotboxing will penetrate far deeper than anyfactory wax keep water out of your base and keeping wax in.
