My name is Andy Shields and welcome to my online store! We are based out of Thunder Bay, Ontario Canada. My aim with this website is to curate a fantastic line-up of products organized sensibly by brands, price, and snow-types so you can make knowledgeable purchases. Check out my instructional pages to learn more on how to apply waxes like a pro! Remember, waxing is a craft with limitless experimentation. Be a scientist and find your unique waxing recipe that takes you down the trails with wintery bliss!

I purchased the domain name skiwax.ca from Rodney Ruddock in October of 2017. Rodney wrote and ran skiwax.ca starting in 2001 - probably one of the first online retailers for ski wax and waxing accessories anywhere. I met Rodney at a very young age in Kitchener/Waterloo (my hometown) where we were both involved in the local ski club. In addition to running skiwax.ca, Rodney imported and distributed Ski*Go for several years. He became a mainstay on the continental cup circuit with his Ski*Go booth being a common sight at various races and ski events across Canada. In his role as Canada's Ski*Go representative, he sponsored me with Ski*Go poles, wax, and waxing tools for eight seasons. During those eight years of Ski*Go sponsorship, I competed at two Nordic World Junior Championships, two Nordic U23 World Championships, and had 10 World Cup starts.   

For the 2017/2018 ski season, I decided instead of a Kickstarter or GoFundMe campaign to raise money for my racing season I would start a business. Partly as a new challenge, but also as a way to have a more substantial exchange with those who would support me. I use to rely on personal sponsors to fund my skiing pursuits but always asking for money year after year was wearing me out. Providing a (hopefully) useful service to my fellow skiers and waxers as a means to funding my skiing career is a more palatable notion.

Skiwax.ca continues to expand it's product offerings into the 2022/2023 season. Let me know if there's a wax brand you can't find and I'll do my best to get it for you!
