Test Discussion-We were able to complete our paraffin test just before the arrival of the snow around 11am. Due to the new snow, we chose not to test pure fluoros due to the significantly different forecast at race time on Thursday. Nathan and Hennie will be on site Thursday morning to test powders and topcoats. They will be in BNS branded jackets for anyone who has questions. A limited amount of product will also be available at the venue.

note: BNS imports Holmenkol and SkiGo waxes, and also sells waxes from Swix, Toko, Rode, Solda, Rex, Guru, Innovax, Magnar and others. We search for the fastest waxes for our customers and our testing is professional, objective and transparent. We make our best effort to test what we think is the best from each brand.  However, given that we are testing more options from Holmenkol and SkiGo, there is a bias toward those brands.  With this full disclosure, you can assess the legitimacy of our testing yourself. Visit Swix and Toko for their official recommendations. If you have any questions please contact us.
