Eric's Recommendations for Upcoming Races

Location:
Buck Hill
Date of Event:
Jan 18, 2019
Wax Recommendation:
Option #1 Swix LF5 + LF3 Option #2 HWK LFW3 + Extreme Cold Powder Optional Overlay = Raceservice ECGU-4
Wax Ratio:
1:1
Humidity Level:
70%-80%
Additional Information:

Cold temp's and hard snow will require sharp edges and hard LF waxes.  Make sure to cleanly cut sidewall and/or 2nd edge and then apply LF waxes as noted and concentrate powders along the edges to prevent base burn. The overlay I am recommending is a rub-on wax with graphite which runs particularly well in these arctic conditions. As always, when you are done racing make sure to clean your bases with Swix glide wax cleaner and apply Raceservice SBC-1 as a conditoner for the ski.

Good Luck & Have Fun!

Location:
Marquette Mountain
Date of Event:
Jan 18, 2019 to Jan 20, 2019
Wax Recommendation:
Options #1 and #2 noted below
Wax Ratio:
See below
Humidity Level:
80%-90%
Additional Information:

Back to the UP for more cold and snowy racing.  Make sure your SL & GS skis are "sharp enough" and on your Speed skis make sure your sidewall and/or 2nd edge has been pulled back cleanly.  It's going to be cold with some new fallen snow in the mix.  I am recommending either Swix Marathon white or HWK Alpine Pro Cold as both products have wide temperature ranges and will run fast in these conditions.  The humidity level will be ideal for cold overlays.

Option #1

SG & GS = HWK Alpine Cold 1:1 HWK Extreme Cold Powder

SL = HWK LFW3 1:1 HWK Extreme Cold Powder

Overlay = HWK Cold Spray

Option #2

SG & GS = Swix Marathon white 1:1 Swix LF3 Powder

SL = Swix LF5 1:1 Swix LF3 Powder

Overlay = Swix Rocket Cold Spray

As always, when you are done racing make sure to clean your bases with Swix glide wax cleaner and apply Raceservice SBC-1 as a conditoner for the ski.

Good Luck & Have Fun and don't forget to have a pasty or two :)

Wax Recommendation:
See below for both Scored & Non-Scored Recommendations
Wax Ratio:

Additional Information:

Cold temp's and hard snow will require sharp edges and hard waxes.  Make sure to cleanly cut sidewall and/or 2nd edge and then apply waxes as noted and concentrate powders along the edges to prevent base burn.

I have broken down my recommendations into both "Scored" and "Non-Scored" as follows:

Scored SL = Swix LF5 1:1 Swix LF3 Powder or HWK LFW-3 1:1 HWK Extreme Cold Powder     Optional Overlay = Raceservice ECGU-4

Non-Scored SL = Raceservice ZF-4     Optional Overlay = Zuprtour 

Remember after you are done racing to clean your skis with Swix glide wax cleaner and apply Raceservice SBC-1 to condition the bases.

Good Luck & Have Fun
