Race Wax. HF6 Violet. Start MF6 or LF6 Violet would be good economic options. 

Fluoro: Start SFR60 purple powder. SFR99 block or SFR300 liquid would be great economic options.   

Kick Wax

Base Wax. Start Base Wax Extra, thin and ironed. (Start Violet Klister could be the choice if less snow falls than is forecast) 

Main Wax. Start RF Blue. Try Start RF Red if more kick is needed.  (Start Uni Wide Klister could be the choice if less snow falls than is forecast). Start Terva Blue and Terva Red could be fantastic if there is more new snow (6+ inches) than the current forecast suggests.

Spray Start Fluoro Skin Grip on the skin.  This should be done on race morning.
