I got a tiny little problem with my splitboard. Heavy snow sticks at the bottom of the slider track. It's not very comfortable to walk with lots of snow beneath the feet. I tried some silicone spray but that didn't help. Some ideas?

While skinning?

that's right, just while skinning. it's possible to hit the snow away with the pole tip, but that's quite tedious...

Hmmm? :scratch: not sure what the solution is, maybe skin wax?(AKA glop stopper)

the matter is not sticking snow on the skins but on the bottom of the slider tracks while hiking...

Sorry I should have been more specific. Yes try the wax on the slider plate. I have used skin wax on the top of my board to keep it from icing over. It sounds weird but it worked, so I figure if nothing else at least your sliders will go on the pucks easier.

Anybody else?

I had this problem and solved it by putting silicone grease just on the slider rails. Silicone spray may have just exacerbated the snow sticking to the plate. Hope that works for you!
