triumph.man how is the snow condition? if the snow is slush and translucent, your are pretty much not riding in any snow, and will cause that sticky effect.

That would be funny but the culprit I think is just an older lady roommie and she is pretty chill. Letting us use her truck/camper for a little trip or 2 if we have to go search for snow this year.

makenewusername Thanks for the replies guys. My board is only a year old but i think i figured out why it has no base anymore. I just got into waxing my own board and i realized i was scraping off some colored wax (the base of my board) that's bad right?

AWNOW It's your wax.

Use warm wax, not all weather wax.

ShredLife base grind isn't a bad idea - but when i ride slush/spring conditions i go faster if i strip absolutely as much wax from the base as possible and ride it bare. get a base grind and don't wax it.
