On Ice coast you need to use a little harder wax. Man Made snow is the worst for your base, it is more harsh on you base. I have seen the opposite happen. My Capita needs wax every 2 trips my NS gets waxed before it shows any need for it. Usually wax every 2 days out on average. Lack of Natural snow this season = needing more frequent waxings done. At least in my area missed all the good snow storms this season.
