Glop on Skins
Dek: 
Snow stuck to the bottom of your skins is one of the quickest ways to take the fun out of a day in the backcountry. Here's how to stop the glop and keep it fun.

Glop Stopper Skin WaxThere is no more soul-crushing experience while skiing in the backcountry than lugging ten pounds of snow stuck to the bottom of your skins while you’re trying to ascend that couloir you’ve had your eyes on all season. When the snow heats up in the springtime your skins get wet. Cross some cold snow in the shade and bam, you’ve got snow glopping to the bottom of your frozen skins. You can kick your heels and drag your skins across rocks and trees, trying to knock off the glop. No luck. You’re stuck with it. Either you suck it up and carry the extra 10 pounds of snow with you to the summit, or you turn around and head home. Next time come prepared. Pick up a block of Glop Stopper skin wax from Black Diamond and rub it into your skins BEFORE you go out. It’ll keep your skins dry and glop free and you’ll keep your backcountry buzz going all day long. [$12.95; bdel.com]
