Default waxes - temperature range

Dear All,
I wonder if there any views out there about going out with the temperature
ranges of waxes. Say you put on something that is recommended for use up
to - 5C will it work reasonably well if the temp goes up to -3C or -2C. I
suspect that there are a lot of variables.

Default waxes - temperature range

I should have added, I am a great fan of Rex Klister tape, which can be left
on for days- if the temperature range is great.

Where part of the country are you skiing in and what brand(s) of wax are
you using?

Default waxes - temperature range

As I said I am a great fan of Rex Klister Tape, the cold version goes up
to -5C. One application can intended last for days. I will be going into the
mountains west of Bjoirli in Norway. I expect the temperature to vary
between -15c and 0c.

Then what's your question? The Rex tape comes in two versions, down to
-20C (universal) and -25C (cold) -
http://store.finnsisu.com/kickrex.html. I prefer the Start tape, but I
found neither is very good above 2 or 3C. If you want to strip it and
kick wax, that's a different matter. Some waxes tend to be true to
their labels (Swix) and some vary considerably (Rode).

The universal should be O.K. I can put it on carefully at home and forget
about waxing for the rest of the tour, not a great pleasure in extreme cold.
However Tape grip gold could suit the cold conditions and fresh better. How
this wax perform above -4c?

Neil,

Where is "Bjoirli"? I.e. what region of Norway?

I have ski toured in several regions of Norway and have ecountered
waxing conditions from cold dry snow (green wax) to high humidity
(fog) near 0C and warm klister conditions during the Easter season.

We have had to use skis at times.
