Test Discussion- We tested paraffins and powders this afternoon on course from 10:30 to 12:30pm. Our best powder was Ski*Go C105 powder – this will be a very safe call for the forecasted conditions tomorrow. Holmenkol Race Powder Mid and Ski*Go C44/7 also tested well. For paraffin we liked a mix of Ski*Go HFP16 and Ski*Go LF Graphite. This is a combination that the Ski*Go boys in Sweden have recommended to us for man-made and man-made mixed snow - it was very good today in our testing.
