Sticky snow???

I went boarding today, and I noticed as soon as a started skating over to the lift that my board was making a weird squeaking/grinding noise against the snow. Then when I went down the run it was reeeeaaally slow. I literally just went straight down, no turning, and I wasn't going very fast. The snow seemed kind of soft and wet. Could this have anything to do with it? Or do I just really need to wax my board (last time I went it was really icy so that might have stripped the wax...) ?? I'm going to wax it tonight and try again tomorrow, but I was just wondering if the snow had anything to do with it.

You need wax.

Was it man-made snow, I mean from the machines? At times our resort has some sticky snow like you're talking about, but the problem will go away on colder snow.

Heavy wet snow will make you stick to it quite a bit...

Especially out here in Oregon...sometimes we have these wierd melting cycles or even rain on top of powder...god forbid you step an inch into that its slowwwwww

were u riding on factory wax? and if so how many times did u ride on it?

If where u snow board, the snow is mostly mushy and slushy, then wax your board with hi-fluoro wax.

Wet snow or spring snow will really slow u down if u dont have the correct wax.
in the spring time u can use a warm hydrocarbon wax, and in the winter time, pick out a temp specific wax that is high in fluoro!

Without me, my board is useless. Without my board, I am useless
