You cannot, by definition, have an ice cube above 32F, and this goes for ice granules too.
do you have scientific proof to back this up? ive never heard of that before?

Cold Feet Warm temp wax will be fine. That's what it's designed for. Waterproofing spray is for clothes. Wax is for snowboard bases.

Bring a change of socks for the end of the day when you're done. When you get home, take your soles out of your liners, liners out of your boots and let them dry for a long long time.

Don't worry about waterproofing spray, you'll get wet anyway. If you want to stay dry, then don't fall, but this is the kind of snow you want to practice high-pain stuff on, because falls are easy on the ass (just wach out for rug burn).
