Snow Type:

  • Kick Wax
    • Toko 2 layers of X-Cold or 5 layers of Rode Special Green
  • Glide Wax
    • Toko LF Blue with X-Cold power or Swix CH 4 With LF3 Cold Power
  • Notes 
    • For glide with relatively new snow snow in cold temperatures the snow is very sharp and dry. To counter this the wax needs to be hardened  with cold power.
    • The tracks are getting skied in and the glide will improve.

    • If the track is glazing you may need to bump the wax up one step warmer. for Toko that would be Blue.
    • I would continue to use the cold powers for glide wax additive.
