Ski & Snowboard Sauna's patented heating process uses gentle radiant heat to evenly and safely warm your ski and snowboard bases for maximum wax penetration. Hot box users have reported that a few hours of treatment is comparable to up to 30 hand ironings!
Bases are extruded polyethylene on inexpensive skis/snowboards or sintered on the performance ones. The extruded bases have little ability to absorb wax, while sintered bases have a spongy structure with microscopic spaces that absorb wax. This will protect the bases of your skis/snowboard from friction with the snow crystals and will make them faster. Hot Box-ing will saturate you skis/snowboard bases with wax and is the equivalent of 20+ hand iron waxes.
Racers and serious ski and snowboard enthusiasts have been hot boxing—or talking about hot boxing—to super saturate their ski and board bases for longer lasting results. Recreational skiers appreciate the simplicity of a few Ski & Snowboard Sauna treatments per season versus the time-consuming repetitive hand ironing and scrapping that used to be the norm. With Ski & Snowboard Sauna, simply hand iron an ample amount of the recommended wax onto the ski or snowboard and place in the Ski & Snowboard Sauna for 2 to 4 hours. Check them once or twice midway during the process and add extra wax if needed. Racers simply add the appropriate race day wax based on snow conditions to finish the process.
