Was it a hand wax or belt wax?
If it was a quickie belt wax and you were riding all day particularly if on man made snow I could see this happening. Hand waxing penetrates the base better and lasts a little longer, so if it was a proper hand wax I'd be a bit surprised to have it worn off so soon.
I ride a lot of man made snow and bought an iron, 2 brushes (on nylon, one metal), a scraper and some wax; it doesn't take long to pay for itself, and it takes less time to wax the board then it does to drop it off and pick it up from a shop.
