As skiers we get obsessed with the weather and what affects it, particularly as it relates to snow. Change is the essence of climate – climate is the trending of changes in the weather, and you don’t need a weatherman to tell you which way the wind blows. With a bit of extra work, we can reduce our impact and this is the motivation driving the folks at MountainFlow where they develop lubricants that are environmentally friendly using plant based materials, not petroleum. No matter how you slide: free, locked or sideways, Mountain Flow’s Eco-Wax keeps the glide in your slide.
It is hard to imagine the wax we leave in our wake amounts to much impact. Even so the guiding principal of wilderness preservation is to leave no trace. It’s impossible to avoid zero impact, but with Eco-Wax you can rest assured the biodegradable ingredients you leave behind will have a negligible impact, like how significant your presence is in blocking the wind.
Eco-Wax comes in the usual flavors based on air temperature; Warm, Norm, and Cold. If you need something more specialized, sustainability is not your top priority. For the average downhill junkie though, Eco-Wax is all you need and you can use it with confidence you’re minimizing your footprint while maximizing your Tele tracks.
