On the East coast, definitely.. man made snow/ ice and corn, your base will go white in a day or two.. but like WasatchMan said.
Some wax every other day, some every week, some once a month, some never do.
If you want to keep you base nice and slick on the hill wax it.. if you don't mind a bit of drag and a decrease in speed then don't bother waxing it as often.
PS. If you're going to buy a tuning kit.. don't get suckered into paying a high dollar for a "waxing" iron.. any iron will do.. travel irons work great. Pick one up at a yard sale and you'll be set.
To legit to quit.
On the move this season.
