Wax Room: First Tune of the Season

1974 alpine ski world championships st moritz switzerland rossignol was room2/3/1974 Press Photo:  The alpine ski world championships in St. Moritz have to change their program for the downhill race for men had to be postponed, the bad weather did not allow the necessary pre-race training on the run.  So these fast men on their narrow woods have to wait for sun.  Top favorite Roland Collombin (right) and his friend Philippe Roux bring their skis for waxing to Swiss wax-expert Paul Berlinger (left).

Tonight I arrived home to the smell of ski wax – yes!  I consider myself fortunate that my husband tunes a mean ski.  We probably have another week or two until we are on snow but our skis are ready!
