Mmm, no. Just think about it for a second. If the agent were water soluble, then you would literally need tons of it just to cover a single slope due to the vast amount of snow.

If the agent was not water soluble then it would get tossed all over the place and covered up after just a few runs...making it uneven and partially hidden by tracked snow.

there's no snow to push around.

maybe a cool summer activity?
