Wax Recommendation

Base Glide Layer Recommendation:

Rode Endurance (Fluor-Free)
Holmenkol FF21 (Fluor Free) or Holmenkol LF21 (fluorinated)

Race Paraffin Recommendation:

Rode R20 (FF)
Holmenkol FF Blue (FF)
Holmenkol Syntec HF Cold or Racing Mix Cold (Fluorinated)

Skigo C105 or Holmenkol Syntec Powder Cold (fluorinated)

Topcoat Recommendation:

Rode Racing Liquid Cold (FF)
Holmenkol FF1 Liquid Blue or FF2 Liquid Blue (FF)
Skigo C105 Solid (Fluorinated)

Structure Recommendation:

S1.3 or S0.3 grind with no hand structure added.

Kick Wax Recommendation:

Clean and sand kick zone, then apply a hard wax base layer and iron in, let cool: Vauhti Super Base for longer distances, Rode Black base or Guru base for shorter distances.

Layer kick wax of the day on top of the base layer: Several to try:
1. Guru Green or Guru Blue
2. Rode Multigrade Blue or Rode Green
3. Holmenkol Green or Holmenkol Blue

If you need to use a stickier kick wax for grip, you may want to try a thin layer of green on top to speed it up.

This looks like pretty-straightforward conditions with cold nights and no new snow. Should be good, consistent skiing
