Forecast/Conditions: Overnight low of 17, start temperature 25. Partially transformed snow, 60 percent cloud cover, no precipitation forecasted.

Glidewax: Apply LF Black, scrape and brush, then apply HF Red, scrape and brush. Finish by crayoning JetStream Red, iron hot (320F) with a layer of fiberlene under the iron, traveling slowly (20 seconds) tip to tail. Brush with a dedicated nylon polishing brush and polish with a thermopad.

Gripwax: Roughen base with 150 grit sandpaper, iron in Nordic Base Wax Green, cork smooth, let cool. Then apply 3 layers of Nordic GripWax Red, corking between layers.

Structure: A universal grind covered by one pass with the Red Structurite tool before JetStream application will best suit these conditions.
