Gear West Weekend Wax Recs:
SISU Ski Festival - Ironwood, Michigan
Friday Night low: -5 F
Saturday High: 0 F......brrrrrrrrrr
Make sure your bases are hardened off for this race. It's wicked cold in the UP of Michigan.
Harden off base with a good cold wax. We recommend Start SG10 or Swix CH4. After scraping and brushing, polish with a finer Fibertex. This really helps to polish the base. More polished and shiny = fast skis in cold snow!
After initial hardening, use Start LF10, Swix LF3, or Swix LF4
Final Layer: Start MF10, Swix HF4 or Rex TK-22 combined with Swix LF3
1. VG35 or Start Base Binder (ironed in!!)
4.VR30 X 4 THIN LAYERS
