Skin Glop No More- A swear Free Spring.I do a lot of ski touring. It's what I do for work and when I'm not working guess what? Yeah, ski touring, over 100 days a year, every year. I'm not saying this to brag, I am making the statement so that when I say the most painfully frustrating thing about ski touring is snow sticking to your skins AKA skin glop, you believe me. It's a very common issue in the spring and can easily turn a nice walk in the mountain into a swearing filled sweaty nightmare. Some of us carry a little chunk of wax and crayon the wax onto our skins in the morning or AFTER a few bouts with skin glop. Well, too little too late amigo! Your skins are already wet so prepare yourself for suffering.
It doesn't need to be this way of course. With a little preparation and ten minutes of your time, you can experience a glob free spring. The key is to hot wax your skins. Watch the 2-minute video below for a simple demo. Save yourself a couple of F-bombs this spring and try it. Let us know how it went. There is lots of skiing left out there so stay strong and keep focused. Do not look at your mountain bike.
