    Doesn't Work

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've used this product 4 times in the San Juan Colorado backcountry. First off, it just adds 10 minutes to every day since you are supposed to apply daily. I wanted this stuff to work, but the only time it did was a blower powder day where everyones skis were clear of snow. On two different occasions, my splitboard actually had MORE snow on it than people who didn't use it which was frustrating. This was also the case for other people I've toured with. I'm not sure what conditions are actually supposed to work in, but 25 degree fresh snow days it did nothing. On the pictures, the ski that was clear was actually NOT using snowshed where I was. This was after about 3 hours of ski touring and regular clearing of snow. I applied as intended, and even put on multiple coats. Sorry, but it simply doesn't work and isn't worth the hassle every day to have to put on. I have yet to do one ski on and one ski not, but I simply don't believe this stuff works.

      Snow Shed Topsheet Wax

      Snow Shed Topsheet WaxWe’ve all been there – breaking trail with a healthy layer of snow on our ski topsheets, cursing the added weight with every step. It does not seem to matter what your ski topsheet material is or it’s texture; given the right conditions, snow builds up and adds weight to every step as you head up the skin track. I’ve experimented with a variety of topsheet treatments from Rain-X to F4 in an attempt to reduce snow build up. I’ve had mixed success. K2 even started making topsheets out of p-tex, so you could apply ski wax to reduce snow collection. Well, some backcountry skiers from Colorado have been experimenting too and introduced a new product called Snow Shed topsheet wax –

      The beauty of Snow Shed Wax is that it’s a water-based lubricant; It’s even sourced in Colorado. According to, Peter Arlein, Founder and CEO of Snow Shed Wax, the product was born out the same frustration we all have – the added weight on our lightweight ski gear while out ski touring. He experimented with a variety of lubricants and solutions and was pleasantly surprised to find that the most effective solution was actually readily biodegradable and considered non-hazardous to the environment, according to OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard.Snow Shed Topsheet Wax

      Snow Shed Wax is a specially formulated silicone lubricant. Once applied, it dries quickly to form a super-thin hydrophobic layer on top of your skis. The layer reduces snow’s ability to bond to the ski’s topsheet and thus decreasing the likelihood of significant buildup.

      I’ve been testing Snow Shed Wax this season. It’s easy to apply – just spray on your top sheets (it comes in a pump spray bottle) – spread around with a cloth and let dry for 5-10 min. Ideally, your skis are warm and dry before applying. In testing, I found that it is best to apply daily for most effective results. According to Arlein, Snow Shed can also be used on bindings and climbing skins – (the sliding side, not the glue side).

      My testing has been limited to reasonably cold conditions – arguably not the worst-case scenario for snow build up – but I have done some A / B testing with one ski treated, one ski not and skied with a buddy who was on the same model ski without any treatment over the course of several ski days. Snow Shed definitely reduced snow build up, though it did not eliminate it. Over the course of several ski days, there were times when my topsheets were totally clear and my ski partner’s untreated skis were covered with snow, and there were times when we both had a degree of build up. All in all – the Snow Shed Wax was helpful, though it’s no silver bullet – not that I was expecting perfection, but I was hoping.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      At first I was like "nahh" and then I was like "Dang!". I picked up some 'Shed last year and now put it on before every tour. Works good in all the conditions I've used it.

      This Stuff is Great!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I just bought some and it works really well. I'm usually wicked out of shape early season and the snow buildup on my topsheets drives me crazy. I also sprayed some on my skins and it worked great there too.
