Here's how it works -- You input the information you have about four variables:
how you intend to slide, snow type, snow temperature, and snow humidity. It's
that simple, and you don't even have to provide all of this data; the Virtual
Technician can help you even if you don't know the snow temperature. Just enter
the information you have and, within seconds, our cyber-tech will recommend the
best waxes for the conditions you've specified, with options for recreational
use, high performance, and racing. If you need information on how to apply the
waxes the Virtual Technician recommends, just click on the "Waxing Procedure"
section of the answer.

the snow type here. Man-made and natural snow up to three days old are considered
"new" snow. For example, if it snows (or if snow is made) on Monday the snow is
"new" till Thursday and becomes "old" on Friday. This is important information
and if you do not have it you can easily get it by calling the resort. If
you 're not sure of the snow type, leave this blank.
you know the snow temperature enter it here, and tell the Virtual Technician if
your measurements are in Celsius or Fahrenheit. If you do not know the snow
temperature, it is better to leave this blank than guess. It is also better
to leave this blank than to input the air temperature, because air and snow
temperatures can be very different.
is a measure of the moisture content of the snow. We have found this to be more
relevant than air humidity and this is how it works: If you cannot make a snowball,
the snow is dry; if you can make a snowball but it does not stay together the
snow is normal; and if the snowball stays together the snow is wet.
