Wax Recommendations

NWVE provides Wax Recommendations for events around New England.  We try to be the first to publish and will update as needed.  We are not sponsored by a specific company, explain the characteristic of the wax we recommend, and the intended advantage.  We will be at many of the races we make recommendations for and will share our test results, and the range of options skiers with different preferences have. Scroll down to see what we are up to!

We Wax for All Laps

Dial It Out Philosophy

Waxing is not that complicated if you want to ski on something that works.  We test for success.  Trying to dial in the perfect wax can create a very narrow window for a dynamic situation.  We account for variability that can occur on course or through the duration of the race.
