STRUCTURE

Stone ground skis: Medium structure. Remember to use hand structure on stone ground skis for better glide.

Swix Structure Tools: Imprint Tool Roller (T423/T406) “Straight”: 1.00 mm (imprint roller that gives straight structure). Add more pressure to the tool when it is warmer.

GLIDE  -  Alternative 1:

  1. Iron in LF6X. Let cool off. Iron in once more and let cool off. Scrape off with a Swix Plexi Scraper, and brush with a Swix Bronze or Steel Brush.
  2. Finish with the Blue Nylon Polish Brush.

GLIDE  -  Alternative 2:

  1. Iron in one layer of HF6X or DHF104 White Marathon. Let cool off. Iron in once more and let cool off. Scrape off with a Swix Plexi Scraper, and brush with a Swix Bronze or Steel Brush.
  2. Apply Cera F FC6X with an iron temperature of approx. 165°C. Make one fast continuous pass with the iron with a constant pressure – take one side of the groove at the time. Let cool approx. 10 min. Brush up the powder with a stiff, black nylon brush. Continue brushing with a horsehair- or wild boar brush.
  3. Finish with the Blue Nylon Polish Brush.

GRIP:

  1. Sand (rub) the grip zone area with #100 grit silicon sandpaper (Swix T330 or T0011).
  2. Iron in one layer of VG35 Green Base Wax. Let cool off.
  3. Apply 2-3 thin layers of VR40 Blue Grip Wax. Smooth carefully out between each layer.
  4. Apply 3-4 thin layers of VR45 Violet. Smooth carefully out between each layer.
  5. Take along VR55N Violet.
    How many layers you should apply depends on the span of your ski.

Forecast: Mostly cloudy Sunday.
