Default Wax suggestion for Loveland (1/18-1/1/21)

I have been lurking around here long enough to know that there are several Loveland regulars around this board. I am hoping one or more will be able to make a suggestion for wax temperature for next week. Looking at the weather channel it appears that an all temp wax is fine but the temperatures listed at the ski area web site are considerably colder and suggesting a cold temp wax might be better. Any thoughts on who to believe? I doubt seriously I will have any place in my hotel that I could rewax so I am going to be stuck with what I apply at home or else have to over pay the shop to wax.

Currently my new board has been hit with 3 coats of base prep wax, and 2 coats of all temp, and a narrow band of cold temp at the edges. Should I make one more application? If so what?

Also this board is about to travel 1200 miles on a roof rack and I have no bag for it. Any suggestions on protection from road grime and rock damage? Would it be a good idea to wait and scrape my last wax application off until I get to CO?

Thanks

I pretty much use cold weather wax from December until mid March out here. All temp will work but cold temp wax is probably going to be ideal.

As far as the grime on your board goes. Just wipe it off when you get here. You can use a mild cleaner to help if it's really grimey. Windex, soap and water, etc...

I wouldn't worry that much about it.....Some all temp wax will be fine. This weekend at Loveland is suppose to be sunny and temps from 20-30 degrees. But by next weekend it could change quick.....All the coats your talking about just seems like a overkill.I'd just put a wax down scrape it then ride.....worse comes to worse Loveland will do a quick wax for like 10$-15$

Brand new board was thirsty for wax... besides I don't have a dang thing better to do than wax and dream about the slopes.

Is it really that bad? I expect 8 and 9 to be bad but hopefully the rest of the mountain is ok. I would rather board but if I am looking at likely equipment damage even on main runs I will have to break out my rock skis as unfortunately I don't have a sacrificial snowboard.
