I may let you keep your tops clean and neet but I can't bear to polish them. (Actually, the wax may help to keep the snow from sticking).  Please make sure you do not reference me on EPIC.  :o

I guess I am really getting old.  I find that's what's on the inside dramatically affects how I view what's on the outside.

No, I see no attraction to "that". Now back to our regular program....

I can understand waxing the tops to keep the snow from sticking so I guess I can't be too hard on Gary. I know that in Beaver Creek, I had a problem with snow sticking on my tops but that was a little different situation ::)

Well Ron..truthfully and so far through my experimentation.... wax may help a wee bit on keep snow to sticking on the top skins but I think mostly it helps keep the tops looking good. Still, trying to find the right product that does both.
For all:
One thing you can do to reduce friction is if you have rough pieces of material where the top skin meets the metal edge, get some emery paper or a sanding block and run it up an down that locatoin to get rid of the top skin burrs that come from the manufacturer or from ski time. It's easier on the hands to carry and provides resistance on those soft and deep snow days.

Real Men Do Worry Ron....we're sensitive and willing to expose our most inner feelings! Oh man yuk...that was really hard to say.

In all the mysteries of the universe, I continue on my quest, undaunted by nay sayers as yourself, forging ahead. My vision of top skin renewal, ( no fore..... jokes please) stands before me.

I battled the squirrels in my backyard the same way until one day I found the perfect feeder that spins the squirrels off like they were on a Merry Go Round.....10years of grease, hot pepper, 110 volt but I achieved my quest.

So go ahead, slander my good name, crush my dignity, I stand alone, (with Jim) in search of the perfect top skin wax.

Your Crusader,
G

Lynn...you see in addition to my wifes' many smart and wonderful credentials, she is a psycologist. When we first met, she tried to get me to say without neatly catagorizing everthing, what exactly what might be bothering me or just on my mind.
Now...I'm a motor mouth...yep no hesitations.

There is however, the man gene that makes me cringe a bit but being a truely sensitive, all mountain PMTS skier,  BUT>>>I know the value and appreciate all of it....NO DOUBT!
