    Partial Removal of heavy ski wax layer

    Hi All,

    Last Spring, I put a heavy coating of ski wax on for Summer/Autumn storage.
    I'd like NOT to have to scrape it all off and apply a fresh lighter coat.
    I'd like to try heating the storage coat so it's easily removed with a scraper, only leaving a light coat to scrub and buff, and be good to go.

    Is this okay to do?
    I don't want to damage the base by scraping and scrubbing on a layer of wax that's too thin.

    Thanks for your guidance.

    use a plexi scraper and do not heat it up. i wouldnt worry about the amount of wax it will all wear off rather quickly
    I tend to just clean the edges and be done with it

    Scrape or ski it off. One run and it will mostly be gone.

    Agreed with what is said. Scrape and ski it off.

    And there it is.
    Thanks for the guidance!
    I'll commit to the heavy scrape and ski-off the remainder.
    Kind regards.
