14)-Taylormatt -FT instructor who skis 7 days a week opening day to closing day. 110+ days and I wax religously every morning. I go through a lot of wax.
15)- volklgirl -Michigan skiers, 50+ days, all snow conditions, day and night skiing, Nastar and League racing, 13 prs of skis.....we wax every day and love to experiment. Oh yeah, 4 snowboards and 3prs of blades.
16)- Tarzan -I ski New Mexico, Colorado, and Utah, mostly on 2 to 5 day trips 4 to 8 times a year. Tuning and waxing has to be done upon arrival if there is time, or after the first day of skiing. Basically its a pain and time killer.
17)-skier219 -skis volumes of man-made snow down here in the southeastern US. Wintergreen VA and Snowshoe WV
18)-Trekchick - Hot chick with a quiver
20)--telerod15- mid-atlantic, telemark/snowboard
21)-KenE - Telluride instructor who also works full time so during the season time is quite tight. A product that would really work and is fast to apply would be wonderful.
22)-Canuck - Alberta part-time ski pro, CSIA III, CSCF II splitting time between Canada Olympic Park (staff trainer) and mountain resorts (Sunshine, Lake Louise, Castle) - Let me know if I can help out with the test.
23)-AnitSuperEgo - I am a novice that skis 20 - 25 days on a small family mountain in western mass. the snow conditions can vary greatly just from top to bottom on any given day.
24)-Singel -I'm also interested, should get 50-60 days this year, mainly Louise and Fernie. The only catch is I've never done my own waxing before, but was planning on learning to do it all this year anyways. I should be pretty useful in the first-time user market segment.
Looks like we are getting a diverse group which is awesome! Any holes? It would be generally helpful for all testers to provide any and all additional info you wish to share that would be viewed by others as useful information.
Canuck & Singel (and others) I'll need to double check this, but I think Rick of T4B will be at Lake Louise again this year for the ladies downhill in Nov. Stopping by and saying hello there or the warehouse would be great and he'll be happy to get you squared away when the kits are ready.
Skierhj, thanks for the input. It's definitely appreciated. I know for some, switching wax, is like switching religions, though skis are another thing....we'll just have to work on converting you.
