I know that some waxes are better temps, but how do you tell what temp the snow is. The wax goes by snow temp not air temp and with 90% of the snow in the east coast right now being fake, how do you know what temp it is? Figured blown snow would be pretty cold, somewhere below 26F.
I have heard to wax based on the previous nights temperatures because the snow stays colder than the (next day) air temp, within reason. If the sun is beating down on it all day, then go warmer. If you're using Swix or Racewax, they do have a "wax wizard" on their site where you enter the air temp, snow conditions and it will suggest a wax for you.
Seriously, toe, we do this a lot at MHM to get things "just right". Mixing wax is a very common practice. I for example in this shit we are stuck with here lately, will use a standard all temp wax and then use an arctic, super hard wax along my edges where the most wear occurs.
Cool, thanks. Is blending the different temp. waxes while they're liquid then uniformly covering the entire base effective?
