Cloudy with new cold snow. Here is what I would do using Solda glide wax.

GOOD WAX:

Base: Solda HC28, scraped and brushed.

Paraffin: Solda F15 Green

BETTER WAX:

Base: Solda HC28, scraped and brushed.

Paraffin: Solda F15 Green

Top: Solda S30 cold powder

BEST WAX:

Base: Solda HC28 scraped and brushed; then apply a layer of Solda S30 cold powder. Scrape while still warm and do not brush.

Paraffin: Solda F15 Green

Top: If the weather is right and it is likely to snow, top with Solda HP06. If it does not snow so much and looks to be dry during the race top with Solda HP05/S30 mix 50/50.
