"It does make your skis feel a little slippery when you carry them by hand, but it mitigates snow so well that it’s worth it. I use Snow Shed on my SkiMo race skis, but also on any ski that I tour uphill on, because hauling snow uphill is no fun."
"This miracle product is meant for the top of your board, not the bottom, however, it works the same kind of snow-gliding magic, creating a slick, anti-stick surface on your board where snow tends to pile up. To use it, just spray the wax on top of your board, allowing it to shed snow off the front and sides thus preventing big heaps of snow from piling on and slowing you down."
"Snow Shed definitely reduced snow build up, though it did not eliminate it. Over the course of several ski days, there were times when my topsheets were totally clear and my ski partner’s untreated skis were covered with snow ... All in all – the Snow Shed Wax was helpful, though it’s no silver bullet – not that I was expecting perfection."
"In the backcountry where every ounce counts, there is no need for the extra weight of snow on your gear, so keep Snow Shed handy to keep your setup as light as possible."
