I do a combo of snowolf and kirkrider. I bring my board inside to warm up a bit after riding, drip wax from iron, spread it evenly, let it dry, have a drink, spread it once more, set the board to the side until the morning then scrape and texture before heading to the mtn while breakfas is cooking. My 12 year old usually does the first half since I work evenings and I do the second part in the mornings.
We wax once a week, every 5-7 days in soft powder/packed powder conditions. Once every 2-3 days if hard pack or Icey. We do use temp specific wax for anything under 25-30 degrees, all purpose if it's forecast warmer usually in spring. We have been pretty good about waxing for quite a while. My son just passed 1 million vertical feet with lots of park over 55 days this season and is boards, 3 of them, are still in great shape.... He normally uses his Rome though, probably 80% of the time. I use my smokin kt-22 but barely passed 30 days and 350k vert feet, it's in great shape, I had 20 days on it from last spring/summer too.
