Waxing Recommendations:

UW Nordic is sponsored by Fast Wax and Swix so here are both the recommendations. Please note that USCSA Rocky Mountain Conference has a fluoro ban so no college racers will be using any high Fluoro wax of any kind!

There has been no new snow recently and the air temperature on the trails has been between 30-45F. The snow is very old, dirty and transformed. The expected air temperature on Saturday during the citizen/college race is expected to be 45F with the snow being right around freezing. Sunday morning will be much colder and icy.

Saturday: 
Base with HS-30
Cover with HSF-30
Finish with Flite Warm

Sunday:
Base with HS-20
