What color ski wax should you use in downhill ski racing?

You use ski wax in downhill ski racing right before a ski race. Ski wax can become expensive and it wears off quickly so it is really just used for race day. Plus, you end up scraping a bunch of it off before you even ski on it! Ski wax comes in different colors based on temperature. Swix ski wax is a well respected brand. The ski wax comes in small bars that looks like different colored soap. The color of the wax you use depends on the air temperature, snow consistency, and other weather conditions. Each ski wax brand should have a chart which you tell you which ski wax to use and when. It is important that you watch the weather to see what the temperature is going to be the day of the ski race. The ski wax bars come in temperature ranges. Sometimes you can mix different colors if the temperature is right on the border between two different temperature ranges. Or in some cases it may be colder in the morning and warmer in the afternoon. As far as colors go...here is what they recommend for Swix wax: HF4 Green, -10
