Ski touring skins – tips for maintenance

Ski touring skins

tips for maintenance

Touring skins get wet or damp, so they must be hung up at room temperature and dried after each use. Ideally, a film is applied to the adhesive surfaces to protect the adhesive from drying out. Climbing skins can get a build up of snow, especially on ski tours in spring with a partly wet and partly dry snow cover. This means that snow sticks to the surface of the climbing skin that cannot slide anymore, which makes the ascent extremely difficult. To prevent this, climbing skins should be treated once or twice a year. For this purpose, there are skin care sprays or waxes in specialized shops.
