what is the best brand of ski wax?

Brand is not so important as to the type of wax used. You want to make sure the wax is right for the conditions you will be riding. Some wax is harder than other wax and will work better in different conditions. Some wax is made for very cold temperatures -20 degrees Fahrenheit and below, some for intermediate temperatures, and some for warm temperatures, higher than 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Rub on waxes work well for an hour or two but quickly wear off. Hot waxing is best, but takes some time to apply and to learn how to do yourself, or usually costs at least $20 to have someone else do it for you.

It also depends on what type of riding you will be doing. If you are racing, you will want the best wax possible, and this is where brand and formula of the wax is important. It's best to talk to fellow racers in your area to find the best wax for that area's conditions if you are racing. Otherwise, any brand made for the temperatures you will be riding will be fine and any differences in speed from brand to brand will be unnoticeable.
