You could continue forking out buckets of cash to have someone else wax your cross country skis, or you can make a one-time deposit on the Swix Ultimate Nordic Wax Kit and learn how to do it yourself. This kit includes a waxing iron specifically designed for ski bases (normal iron burn and distort bases), glide wax that's ideal for all temperatures, a brush and scraper for convenient cleaning, and vice grips to hold your skis in place while you work. There's also an instruction manual to teach you how to properly tune your skis so you don't mess anything up.
