I bought that Toko Universal cold in bulk from Tognar, I've bought other tools etc from them, actually sitting here putting all my ski wax stuff in a cheap craftsman plastic tool box, lol .. I've ordered the Swix Polar, I guess it all depends on what kind of Winter Colorado/Wyoming gets this year as to what I'll end up waxing them with. If for some reason I don't get out until the Spring I have some Hertel Spring Solution, so we'll see. I'll be sure to post some pictures back here for whichever trip I end up taking, hoping for lots of snow!!!

I am hoping that too!
Cross-country AND down-hill skiing in the backcountry.
Unashamed to be a "cross-country type" and love skiing down-hill.

we've had a cool summer after two miserably hot ones....I am hopeful for this winter! I can report than the Gulf of Maine is now cooler than it normally is this time of year.
