Other than wood toboggan, wax is not needed! Plastic sleds are not like sintered ski base, they dont have the same construction, they won't absorb was so the wax you will put on will rub off really quickly so no reason to put it on in the first place!

Sito, once again you seem to be asking the same open ended non researched questions you asked 3 yrs ago on this forum: http://www.wintertrekking.com/community/index.php?topic=3486.msg30520#msg30520

I would suspect that after your 2 year hiatus from posting on this forum you would be telling us all about what you have discovered from the suggestions we gave you back then...like: (and this is a small sample of your open ended questions you've asked) using electric heating and Mr Buddy in a tent (you have posted this twice), the utility of waxing a sled (posted this twice), what deodorant is the best to wear while winter camping, how you use the latrine winter camping, how your body/hand warmers are working for you, how you've overcome worrying about hyperthermia (or did you mean hypothermia?), how you take videos in the winter, what are your recipes for frying meat in the winter, does your pee bottle become ruined after you use it, did you run into any bears in February, and how you clean your pots in winter, yada, yada, yada,...them move on.
