Funny that the email notification for this thread came through my phone just as I was wiping my board down before loading it into my truck last night haha.

Yeah so it's sort of impossible to get all the snow off the bindings. What I do is bang off/brush off as much as I can, wipe down the edges, load it up.

When I get home, I bring it in and rest it vertically against a wall (tail on a towel to collect water). Wipe it down again. Any melting snow or water from the bindings at that point will drain down to the tail and not lay on the edges. Air drying it this way helps also.

Well let me re-phrase, if you have rust issues you don't have stainless steel

WasatchMan I always wipe my board down with a towel after every session.

Does wonders.

I dont know if the DC PLY has stainless steel edges but I doubt it does considering it DID rust.

I was told today the reason it did not work so great is because I have a WHITE base on my snowboard so it will never be COMPLETELY white again but I hot scraped again and it worked much better this time.
