BNS Wax Recommendation

Houghton JNQ Classic Sprint

Event Information-

Houghton JNQ on the Michigan Tech Trails, Saturday classic sprint and Sunday skate distance.

 

Weather-
Tonight - Snow showers. Low around 13. Wind chill values between zero and 10. Light and variable wind becoming northeast 10 to 15 mph after midnight. Winds could gust as high as 20 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New snow accumulation of 2 to 4 inches possible.

Saturday - Snow. Temperature falling to around 9 by 5pm. Wind chill values between -5 and zero. Blustery, with a north wind 15 to 20 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible.

Saturday Night - Snow showers. Low around 0. Wind chill values between -10 and -15. North wind around 15 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New snow accumulation of 1 to 2 inches possible.

Sunday - Snow showers likely. Mostly cloudy and cold, with a high near 7. West wind 10 to 15 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%.

 

Recommendation:

Base Layer: Ski*Go LF Graphite 

Race Paraffin: Ski*Go HF Blue  

Structure: Fine grinds such as our C0.2 or C1.2.  An application of Ski*Go Pink Paper could also be useful.

Kick: Some options to try are cold kick waxes Guru Green and Blue, Rode Green, Ski*Go XC Green and HF Violet.

 

Discussion – We had good luck with Ski*Go HF Blue in similar conditions two years ago at US Nationals in Houghton.  Given the profile of the sprint course, fast skis are a must, careful choice and application of kick wax is important - better to err on the side of a colder kick wax than too warm.
