Structure: Our S1.3 and S2.2 grinds will run well, Hand Structure: Finite CP17 with one roller will be safe.  Note: If conditions are on the wet side recommend Finite L04 with V05 on the trails – brushed out with horsehair brush.  –or- Holmenkol Cross Structure Tool with one roller. Reports from testing on course Friday are Finite Finish V10 is running best.

Kick: N/A

CONCLUSIONARY NOTES  - With all of the new snow, ski selection and structure will probably be the most important factors. Choose a soft ski, put on large pole baskets, and if you have the NIS system, trying clicking back the bindings one or two clicks and see how they feel. Holmenkol Race Powder Mid (formerly Mid-08) is great in these conditions and will run really well. SkiGo C105 powder is a safe bet with all of the new snow.


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.
