I have wanted to start putting together some ski mountaineering tips posts for quite a while. Stano at www.skintrack.com does a great job of this and as a race director and racer, I especially like his post on race organization.
After being at World’s last year, I started to spend more time on skin waxing. With Emily racing this year and having to wax 6 pair of skins before every race, I feel like I have perfected my technique. This is not the only technique and probably not the best one, but I have found it very successful. I put together this short video ‘how-to’ on hot waxing skins. I would love to hear feedback in the blog comment of other techniques people use or if they find this method useful.
