Yea... spring is fun. I like slush-surfing a lot, the slopes are getting empty cause skiers hate this "leg-breaker"snow and people down in the valleys don't think of skiing anymore, you stay out longer for some more beers, enjoy the sun...
Only problem is to get the right wax One day warm and slushy, next day cold and icy then again waterskiing

I need another pow fix or I'll go insane. This season has been a real tease so far.

Sounds promising. Could you post a pic/link? We've got Swix products here but the names are different.

Swix Wax Universal 180g
I like their CH6 and CH7..... good stuff! This spring I'm using Holmenkol orange for the wet stuff.Got a bunch cheap a few years back.Problem is , it can stain some bases so beware.
