That is my point is no they wont. Most slopes are not as steep as you think they are. There are a lot of snow conditions that will not even allow the plastic sled or the un waxed board to move as the wax helps melt the snow and create the glide to get you moving, an I've had really slow back country conditions where I couldn't get enough speed to hit anything, I throw a little turbo rub on wax and glide it back and forth on the snow for a minute and it's gliding light butter. If I went and grabbed a large surface that doesn't improve my glide.
