Swix snow classification- L to R, Top to Bottom

Dry fresh snow

Freezing temperatures. Falling and freshly fallen snow. Characterized by original snow crystals with sharp corners and edges. Requires harder wax than the more rounded snow particles at the same temperature.


Damp fresh snow

Around zero degrees. Falling and newly fallen snow, characterized in that the original snow crystals can still be recognized; relatively sharp corners and edges. Requires harder wax than the more rounded snow particles at the same temperature.


Fine-grained snow

Freezing temperatures. More rounded snow and ice particles. Often called fine-grained snow in ski lubrication terminology. Requires a little softer wax than at the same temperature and fresh snow.


Damp fine-grained snow

Around zero degrees. More rounded snow and ice particles. Requires slightly softer wax than at the same temperature and moist fresh snow.


Old snow

Freezing temperatures. The final phase of the decomposition process. The snow crystals have taken on an almost spherical shape. Requires softer lubrication than with fine-grained snow.


Damp old snow

Around zero degrees. The final phase of the decomposition process. The snow crystals have taken on an almost spherical shape. Requires softer lubrication, approaching adhesive.


Coarse-grained snow

Freezing temperatures. Characterized by relatively large snow / ice particles that occur when wet snow freezes again. The snow surface is hard and icy. Typical ice adhesive conditions.


Wet, coarse-grained snow

Temperatures. Snow that is exposed to mild weather and melts. The snow crystals are completely rounded. In lubrication terminology: typical adhesive conditions.

Important reminders:

#1 Attendance at practice is important and expected. Skiers are responsible for notifying coaches ahead of time if they will not be attending on a particular day or days.

#2 All skiers should have clothes for both indoor and outdoor workouts in the locker room at this time. Everybody needs to be able to be fully covered. Even on the "nice days" the temp might drop 10 degrees between the beginning and end of practice.

Track daily and weekly cardio workouts and core fitness training.
