Chocowax sets its roots deep within the Whistler Community
Chocowax sets its root deep within the Whistler Community , way back to 1973 when Toshi Hamazaki (Chocowax founders Father) moved to the town of Whistler. Toshi Hamazaki is a local legend who was scouted by Grouse Mountain and Whistler Blackcomb mountains as a ski instructor, all the way from Europe. He was stationed in Kitsbuhl when news of a new ski resort was being developed, this sounded like a goldmine to a skier , and the rest was history. By 1979, he had started the Heli-Ski Program up on the Garibaldi mountain range and named it International Heli Ski School, thus igniting the Japanese tourist trade up at the resort when domestic skiers were the only ones who knew about the area . Below is a snippet of 1980s Whistler and the early years of the town, the villlage and the people. enjoy

Chocowax Featured On WHISTLER.com “Wax on – Wax off!”
The things that set products apart from the rest are Unique Selling Propositions (USP). Chocowax was not only designed and tested to perform better then other waxes, it was designed to perform differently than others. First and foremost, Chocowax is the only ski & snowboard wax that enhances glide using ” float” enabled by minus-ion properties in our ingredients….hold up..sound far fetched? It is scientifically proven that Snow Particles are negatively charged , and it doesnt take a scientist to know that negative and negative oppose magnetically. Although the “Back to the Future- HoverBoard™”are still in the distant future..Chocowax has been conjuring up some futuristic wax.
All these years, Wax companies have been trying to minimalize friction. Chocowax was created to think outside the box, we want to eliminate it!
