Can I use Nordic ski wax on my alpine ski's?

A question we get all the time is "Can I use Nordic ski wax on my alpine ski's?" The answer is Yes, yes, a hundred times yes.

In classic Nordic skiing we use two types of wax, kick and glide. Kick wax is super sticky and helps you grab the snow so you can plant your foot push yourself forward. Glide wax is what makes your skis glide across the snow. This is where Fast Wax comes in.  Fast Wax manufactures all kinds of super slippery glide wax, right here in the U.S. using U.S. sourced materials.

A glide waxes job is to seal all the microscopic voids on the base of your ski and to provide a durable, slippery surface for your ski to glide upon. Fast Wax has been making glide waxes for over 26 years, so we know a thing or two about the science of speed.

Using a US supply chain allows us to use higher quality wax components instead of paying the sea captain to haul wax all the way over here from Europe. Not to mention the smaller carbon footprint.

New to Fast Wax? Totally understand, we spend too much of our time on developing new waxes and winning races than we do on marketing. Doh! To make up for this we are going to offer up a 20% discount on your next Fast Wax order. To snap up this offer use code "FastWax20" at check out.

Anyone who wants to go faster and further across the snow, spend less time in the wax room, and save a few bucks loves Fast Wax.
