Recommendation:

Base Layer: SkiGo LF Graphite.

 

Race Paraffin: Holmenkol Racing Mix Cold,or SkiGo HF Blue if significant new snow falls, HF Universal if not much new snow.

 

Fluoro Powder: SkiGo C380 if new snow otherwise C105, or Holmenkol Mid08 or Syntec Cold.


Topcoat
: SkiGo C105, Holmenkol Mid08 or Speedblock Cold

 

Structure: S0.3. Can try the Holmenkol tool or Finite Finish tool with one cross roller. This will be more effective if there is significant old snow tilled up.

 

CONCLUSIONARY NOTES –  Forecast based recommendation. It is tough to say what the snow will be like at this point. It depends on how much snow falls Thursday/Friday after the rain and how deeply the snow is tilled to bring up the old, rained on snow. MS HS skiers will want to be on the cold side of the recommendation.
