Ready to kick your snowboard’s performance up a notch?
We all know that the right wax can make all the difference. Especially when the conditions are questionable (I’m looking at you East Coast).
So today, let’s chat about the best all temp snowboard wax options.
What Is All-Temp Snowboard Wax?
All temp snowboard wax, as the name suggests, is a type of snowboard wax designed to perform well across a wide range of snow temperatures.
Different waxes are formulated to perform best at different temperature ranges. Some are designed for colder, icy conditions, others for warmer, slushy conditions.
All temp wax, however, is a kind of “jack of all trades,” made to give you decent performance whether it’s a frosty morning or a sunny afternoon.
While it might not outperform a temperature-specific wax in its ideal conditions, all temp wax is a great all-around choice!

How I Tested Each All-Temp Snowboard Wax
This part was pretty straightforward!
Whilst in season, I tend to wax my board once or twice per week. I bought a ton of different waxes and tried a different one each week.
Obviously the conditions varied a little, but over the course of a week I tend to have ridden a pretty wide variety of weather and terrain.
Some waxes were so bad, my board felt worse after using them than it did before!
My Personal Favorite All-Temp Wax
If I was to choose just one, it’d be the PURL all-temp snowboard wax.
Sure, the SWIX F4 might be slightly ahead in terms of performance. But for the same price, you get almost triple the amount of wax with PURL.
They’re also a USA grown small business, and members of the 1% for the planet movement (which I try to support wherever possible).
Here’s a quick video showing the PURL wax in action (and serving as a remind on your waxing technique).
Remember Your Accessories
No hot wax is complete without a trusty wax scraper. If you don’t have a snowboard iron, you’ll of course need one of those too!
You could pick up a complete snowboard wax kit, but some of them are a little cheap and tacky. They don’t always come with the best wax either.
I’m hoping this article helps you to find the perfect all-temp wax.

And remember, riding an unwaxed board is like driving an un-oiled Lambo; sure, it’ll move, but you’ll never know it’s full potential!
