Weather-

Thursday Night - A 20 percent chance of snow showers before 11pm. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 15. West wind 11 to 16 mph decreasing to 5 to 10 mph after midnight. Winds could gust as high as 31 mph.

Friday - Snow showers likely, mainly after noon. The snow could be heavy at times. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 23. West wind 3 to 8 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New snow accumulation of around an inch possible.

Recommendation:

Base Layer: Ski*Go LF Graphite

Race Paraffin: Ski*Go HFP16/Ski*Go LF Graphite mix 50/50

Fluoro Powder: Ski*Go C105 Powder

Topcoat: Ski*Go C44/7 Liquid – should also test C44/7 Block

Structure: Our C2.2 grind will run well

Kick – start with a thin layer of Guru Extreme 39 Hard ironed – cover with hardwax – some to test are Guru Extreme Hallgier or Violet, Rex TK1814, Ski*Go HF Violet, Swix V45

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.
