Keep in mind though that these extra steps are not all that important especially for groomed trails or old snow and is a waste of your time. The reason I do these extra step sometimes is due to either wet, sticky PNW snow or very cold, dry Alaskan powder. Any other type of snow and this really makes no noticable difference.
I have a complete waxing video posted in the maintenance section and the instructor`s section:
Thank you very much for the information. I mostly ride park so just the scotch brite should be good. I will probably brush when the powder days come though. I live in Utah so there's a lot of powder.
