Your wax is too soft for manmade snow, especially manmade snow that is spread within hours of coming out of the gun. If you will be skiing within driving distance of Va Beach, it is guaranteed that you will encounter this type of snow. Ditch the CH8 and order a blue wax, like CH6. You can use the BP88 as a warm wax.
Should have put my ski area in the original post.
Actually, by the end of this season, I'll have more ski days in Vermont than Virginia. I don't know if that trend will continue, but I guess they should be somewhat equal next year.
So, even if the air temperature is warm, you'd use a harder wax for manmade snow. The last few times I skied in Virginia, the air temp has been mid-30's.
Vermont is a completely different story. I split time between here and Jay Peak. Would that CH6 work for both places?
