Eric's Recommendations for Upcoming Races

Afton Alps
Date of Event:
Feb 17, 2018 to Feb 19, 2018
Wax Recommendation:
SL=Swix MB-77+Swix LF3 GS=RaceService ZF-2+Zuprtour Overlay=Swix HVC Cold or Warm
Wax Ratio:
Humidity Level:
60% to 80%
Additional Information:

Things are going to get pretty challenging for the upcoming 3-day weekend.  The forecast is for new fallen snow combined with a temperature roller coaster topping out near 32-degrees and then dropping down to the teens.  Early weather models are switching back and forth between "damp" snow to heavy wet snow; in both cases there will be a high static charge.  With this much moisture, the conditions will be perfect for Swix HVC as your overlay.  Prep you edges accordingly based on the conditons and have your gummy stone handy if your edges are too sharp.

As always, when you are done racing make sure to clean your skis with Swix Glide Wax Cleaner and re-apply Swix MB-77.

If you have any questions please email me at

Good Luck & Have Fun!
