This interactive Wax Book is a compilation or summary of information on waxing that has appeared in the Ski Research News over the past twenty years. It is not a substitute for a review of the articles and data but is intended as a field guide. The charts are based upon air temperature and relative humidity to make them easier for all to use. Snow temperature, snow size and age, and moisture content are dominant factors in wax and structure. Be sure to look at the snow -- up close!

The Ski Research Group wishes to thank all who have helped in the collection and understanding of fast ski wax data. Testers, wax and ski companies, and friends. They deserve the credit and we will accept the blame. But remember, this data is a start and you must develop your own understanding. Good Luck!
