Tuning up your downhill skis.
Tuning should be done every four or five outings; but hot-waxing (steps 9 and 10) should be done before every outing.
At ski shops you can buy the tuning tools or a kit for about $30 to $40. Hot-waxing irons (step 9) cost $18 to $30. You can substitute an old iron (not a steam iron) set at its lowest setting.
Work tip to tail on all steps shown.
