More speed. Your momentum will help fight the stickiness of the rail.

WAX! just like every other board sport wax is a must. I usually find that if I'm sticking to the rails I grab my iron and wax the board as soon as possible. or you can always rub down the rail like skaters do.

throwing a ton of snow on it is the way to go. during woodward coppers summer camp the rails sit out in the sun a little bit before we get up there and they are always sticky first thing in the morning, but with a little snow it slicks right up. same reason why hitting rails in the rain is so much fun.
