Waxing Protocols


There is no official “wax call” for this event, other than NO FLUOROS. However, we’re offering the following tips to aid in your efforts.
  • See Toko Wax Recommendations for Saturday and Sunday
  • If you’re planning on utilizing wax from the IMD wax protocols, we recommend Swix HS5 or CH5
  • Basically, wax for cold conditions. It’s a cold week leading up to the event and the venue location at Jug Mountain Ranch is typically 5 degrees colder than the forecasted temps for McCall.
