Default Skate wax vs snowboard wax?

So, I have some wax from inline skating left over. An entire bar's worth. This is the wax we used to put on rails or concrete/wood ledges to make grinding easier

Use one ball jay or bluebird waxes

And try and get wax most appropriate for the temp of the snow you will be riding.

And use the search feature of this site for more maintenance tips for your snowboard
