Buffalo Kick Wax

Here in Buffalo, we don't need kick wax. We just use leaves attached to our skis with giant clumps of wet snow. #globalwarming


The real lesson of this story though is that as ridiculous of an ill-concieved outing as that was, I still had fun.

UPDATE 2023-01-22 The weather continues to be pretty sad for skiing. I weighed this ski when I came in and it was 1468g; after clearing off all the snow, still wet it was 866g. So I was lugging around 1.2kg of snow. That's almost as bulky as Alpine equipment! I just hot waxed these skis recently and they actually performed really well given this is typical for the conditions we have been getting.
