Swix is a Norwegian ski wax manufacturer long recognized as an industry leader and innovator. They began in 1947 with a series of waxes based on synthetic raw materials rather than traditional natural products. The original Swix ski waxes had no color, so Swix elected to color-code their waxes using cool colors for colder snow temperatures and warm colors for warmer snow temperatures. This color coding system was eventually adopted by most wax suppliers and is still used today.
The Swix Wax Wizard is an excellent tool for selecting appropriate waxes for the conditions.
