Very much to the parents’ pleasure little Molly also caught a severe bout of ski fever. Lately, with the temperatures going up and the snow, at least in the lower areas, becoming a bit slushy, Molly started to complain that her skis were too slow. Now, the last wax had been applied for the race in Kicking Horse – over three weeks ago! Time to get working on those skis again. Except that this time it wasn’t Daddy, who had a go at it, but big brother Max:

Big brother waxes skis of little sister.

Max fully understood that the performance of the skis could not remain as bad as it was and grabbed the waxing iron to apply the rather excellent “Revelstoke Butter”, a simple, but effective ski wax.
