Recommendation:

Base Layer: Ski*Go LF Graphite 

Race Paraffin: Ski*Go HF Blue  

Powder:
Ski*Go C110 Powder, Holmenkol Race Powder Mid

Topcoat: Ski*Go C110 Block, Holmenkol Cold Block

Structure: Fine grinds such as our S0.3 or S1.3.  An application of Ski*Go Pink Paper could also be useful.

 

Discussion – We had good luck with Holmenkol Race Powder Mid in similar conditions two years ago at US Nationals in Houghton, this powder can often run colder than the intended temperature range especially in fresh snow.
