At Greg Christie’s, we have used Hot Box Technologies for over 6 years.
Maybe it’s time to bring in your skis get them hot boxed and prepared for the season after all that skiing on damp grass and ice-covered parkways in November and December.
Hot boxes are generally used to get soft glide waxes such as yellow deep into the base. Once this has been accomplished, it is important to wax the ski with a hard wax such as blue to harden it up.
Otherwise the base will be so soft, it will be white after just a few km in cold snow.
Here’s how to use the hot box to get good penetration:
1. Wax the skis with a soft wax such as yellow.
2. Put the skis in the hot box at 62C for 6-8 hours.
3. Let cool completely. Scrape and brush.
4. Iron in blue, cool, scrape, brush, and repeat.
5. Wax with the wax of the day.
My dad just told me to have fun, and remember with skiing, why I do that-that I do it for fun. For sure, I want to win, but if you don’t have fun, you are never going to win."
New Nordic World Champion, Alex Harvey
They’re the New Crazy Canucks. Bold and playful – almost brash with their joie-de-vivre. Easy to be around too. But committed. Tough. Professional. And they don’t bow down to anyone. Not the Russians. Not the Swedes. Not even the Norwegians…
They’re the high-stepping members of Canada’s national Nordic Team. And they’ve been on a serious roll of late. Consider what Devon Kershaw and Alex Harvey accomplished last week at the World Championships in Oslo.
It was almost like watching Read and Pod and Co. kicking butt in Kitzbuhel 30 years ago. The parallels are spooky. There they were, in Norway’s Holmenkollen Stadium – like Austria’s Streif piste, a shrine to high-performance skiing – playing air-guitar for the crowd after a shocking come-from-behind sprint at the most hotly contested event at the World Champs. And they did it in the most magnificent way possible…
Back in Canada, the superlatives started flying around like golf balls at a driving range. "Canadians Shock The World"; "Stunning Victory at World Champs"; "Canuck Duo Surprises With Historic Gold." FromThe Globe & Mail to the Vancouver Sun, from CBC to CTV, everyone was scrambling to get on the boys’ bandwagon.
For those who’d been paying attention though, the victory wasn’t so much a shock as a vindication. This is what I wrote last March at the end of the Olympic party: "While most of the country was salivating at the thought of the upcoming gold-medal hockey game last Sunday, some of us were watching Devon Kershaw and his under-funded teammates challenge the world’s best in the world’s toughest ski test.’"
