I wax my board often and I do notice a difference from when I slack for a while. Though it should be noted that I ride midwest fake snow/ice pellets. I also run 400 grit sandpaper over my base every few times I wax to structure it. That could be making the difference alone.

I think you've stumbled into a good topic for one of your tech articles. Set up a blind test with identical set ups. Both structured as you like. One waxed and one not. Might take a little doing but it will certainly be interesting.
