January 26, 2020 - Wax - teachable moment.
I need to learn a lot tmore about Klister. Spent most of my life in MN where we ski with cold green wax and then some more green. On a good day we use colder polar white kick wax. Skiing in UT is so warm I need to use Klister wax. I own some universal Klister, but did not apply it correctly or needed something more specific for the varying conditions; ice, wet, sticky. Slip to the back of my age group again. Race officials were kind enough not to DQ me as I am pretty sure I was gliding too much, skating, as I tried to harringbone up even the slightest grades.
