Do boxes scrape off a lot of wax?

When I started doing more boxes the other day, at first my board would slide pretty good on the box, like almost as if it was ice. After a few box runs…and I mostly just hiked one box, my board like started to slow down and even get stuck on the feature if I didn’t have enough speed.

I know waxing is supposed to be for performance on snow, not plastic, but is the scraping off of wax what is causing my board to get stuck on plastic? Or is it something else, like weather throughout the day?

On that note, if you do boxes (or rails perhaps), is it worth it to wax your board? That is…if it gets removed from the features.

What snowolf said.

Toss some snow on the top of the box every once in a while to get rid of that

or ask the park crew to wax the box
