Lovely sunny hot day in the PacNW, and I took the splitboard to Snoqulamie and skinned up Silver Fir. This was a late afternoon exercise run, first outing after a surgery break since Easter. On the way down, the board was sooooooo slow - turns out there was a layer of goop on the base. The board had been stored without the skins, and it had been machine-waxed when last used.
So what's that? Wax-failure due to temp? too much wax left? glue failure due to temp? WTF?
Glad this happened today during a chill single run, and not during a serious outing, .. but what happened, and what do YOU do to avoid this/deal with it?
