Complete e-blast) Testing and Choosing Race Skis at the Boulder Mountain Tour 2017 On a typical day in the Wood River Valley, you can pretty much bet on sunny days, cold nights, firm new snow and amazing grooming.

We approached this week of nationals the same way we did last year: to try to find a good under layer, a good binder, and a good top end speed when the days warm to above freezing. For the distance classic day we went with Toko base green binder mixed with a little hard klister to keep the wax on for 10-15k. Toko jetstream red powder was the ticket for the afternoon racers and our...

Annie Pokorny Eric Packer Skate Sprint- Qualifying-  This was a tricky morning of testing, because of the cold, lots of waxes/structures seemed to slow the skis down.  The night before I had waxed all the skis with HF blue and X-cold powder mix.  I ended up waxing all the race skis with Jetream blue powder and block over the top, which I thought felt fractionally better in the chewed up snow.  Not all the athletes...

Toko Textile Proof – Simply Outstanding Below is ALL of the text from ALL of the reviews fromhere. “This product was a good product, it made the wear fuzz on my winter coat disappear and appear new. I did 3 boots, one summer hat and my coat and snowboard with one can. It wasn’t very effective for the boots because it wasn’t overly thick. This product does not affect the color of the garment sprayed”...
