Default Ever used wintersteiger wax?

Got some wintersteiger today for a couple bucks, the red cubes, warm temp. The guy said it would work, but tried to tell me it was for cross country skiis, what would be different about it? Just simple red wax, nothing special about it. Couldnt hurt could it?

Need a warmer temp, my all temp wax in the slush lasts a day and i already need a re-wax.

wintersteiger is a huge austrian ski tuning company, like toko swix. Cross country skiers are big time wax nerds so i would assume that your wax is made of some pretty good shit.

I wouldn't use it X country ski wax is designed to be a bit more sticky unless it's glide wax.
Angry Snowboarder Because someone has to call it how they see it!

Yeah, there's two basic types of X country wax: kick and glide. The kick is designed to be sticky so that you can push off the small area of the ski base you put it on....the rest of the ski gets glide wax which is pretty much the same stuff as alpine wax. They're pretty clearly marked as Xcountry people certainly don't want to mix them up.
