Test Discussion

We will be testing topcoats on Friday AM on course.  Check back for our test results.

 

We tested powders on course Friday morning on the artificial snow and natural snow along the course.  Our best powder was Ski*Go C111.  This powder will only get faster in the new snow and forecasted cold temperatures!


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.
