Collection: Blue Snow Conditions (Fresh, Powdery Snow, 0°C to -12°C)

Blue conditions are fresh powder. New snow: the natural snowflake structure is still intact. These are what we call perfect conditions. The trails are silky smooth and it is difficult to make a snowball. Blue conditions are not so cold that the snow makes a squeaking noise when you step or pole on it. Not too warm, not too cold. And not too humid either. Just right.

Friction Characteristics: New snow crystals in this temperature range and with medium to low humidity are like a million tiny knives to your ski bases. Kinetic friction is the main kind of friction to deal with. This means a good hard wax that will remain durable and keep the sharp knives of the snow crystals out of your ski base is what you need. Any other water or dirt repelling compounds in waxes will help your glide, but not to a high degree.

Kick Waxing: Kick waxing is dead easy in blue conditions. Hardwax sings. If you’re skiing over 15km use a base binder, but aside from that, it shouldn’t be too hard to find a hardwax that gives you good grip and glide.
