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!
