The latest weather reports are showing warmer weather for both Friday and Saturday than was previously forecast and there is a very high probability of measureable new snow tomorrow during the day. As a result, we expect the course conditions to be a mix of new and highly transformed snow with both abrasive, shorn off ice crystals as well as a high moisture content. This means that applying a pure fluorocarbon topcoat will be much more important for top end speed than we had previously predicted. For kick wax, durability remains a major focus, but the new snow should make achieving kick slightly easier, especially for skiers in the early classic waves.
