I’m finding it hard to believe that ski waxing is still stuck in the dark ages.
All that melting, dripping, ironing and scraping…
Instead, consider today’s invention…a system of reservoirs attached to the upper side of a ski, enabling realtime ski lubrication. These each have their own little heater which allows wax, or a more modern solid lubricant, to be dispensed and flow through pores in the ski onto the sliding surface.
This process could be computer controlled, according to ski speed and snow temperature, so that optimal sliding might be achieved (and maintained).
