Properly waxing your skis or snowboard can add to your fun on the slopes.
Especially if the snow industry geniuses figure out a wax that levitates skis and boards over sagebrush and mud.
Ha-ha, seriously—REI experts will lead a workshop on the basics of waxing, including base preparation, structure, major and minor repair, and stone grinding.
Tonight at 7 p.m., at REI, 3285 E. 3300 South, Salt Lake City. www.rei.com/saltlakecity
Ominously, Weber State is showing two films tomorrow night at 7 p.m. addressing climate change’s impact on winter sports: "Generations: A Skiers and Snowboarders Perspective on Climate Change‚" and "Breaking Trail," in the Shepherd Union Wildcat Theater.
