Anyone with any insight on the functionality of the BD Cheat Sheets; currently, it take me and a mule to separate the skins to my new Mtn Gun when the are placed bottom to bottom as recommended by Voile.

I realize after I left the house this morning I completely misunderstood this thread....ooops. It was bugging me all day while I was fighting non-sticky skins. Was ok since the powder was knee deep & the duct tape held for each climb.

Be thankful your skins are sticky, it's a lot shittier when they won't stick on the climb. Usually happens at the end of the day when your dead ass tired, thirsty and hungry. You gotta stop, find some half ass tool and scrape them. At this point your partners are pissed because they're tired and hungry as well but now they're cold too.
Maybe I'm exagerating a bit but you get the picture. Sticky skins are good.
In terms of pulling them apart, hopefully the skins are folded in half. Place the loop over the end of the boards, stand the board up making sure not to damage the end on the ground (hopefully snow). Now use two hands and pull like a motha.
