2019 Gatineau Loppet Wax recommendation

With nearly 50cm of fresh snow this week the Gatineau Park is a winter wonderland! The weekend weather also looks to be cooperating, and it could be one of the most enjoyable loppet weekends in memory. Cold -20C overnight, but with sun and highs of -6C it should be a great time!

Waxing shouldn't be that tricky. Glide at the moment is a bit slow, ski camber and base structure will play a big role in ski speed. So choose wisely.

Glide:

HF Moly, HF Blue, Gold Fox Powder (HFC 15.1 powder seemed good too)

They don`t actually sell GoldFox anymore or HFC 15.1 the new alternative is FC Cold.

Grip:

Super Binder, 2 layers of K15 underfoot, K19
