Following is a short video from the AMGA and Outdoor Research on skin care during a backcountry ski or splitboard outing.
There are a lot of excellent tips in the video and you should definitely watch the whole thing, but here is a round-up of some main points.
--Keep skins warm and dry, dog-hair and pine-needle free.
--Do not leave them in the sun or too close to the fire.
--The glue backer is nice for summer storage.
--Have "bips" and "bops" to repair the tip and tail.
