    Try cutting cardboard to fit in the windows. Look for double wall closed cell like from a refrigerator packing box. And I found a heater blanket that plugs into the car 12v socket.

    Even better is reflextix, a tin foil bubble wrap kinda insulation found at Lowes.

    You can always split the skin down the middle, sew a loop around the tip clip so they move out laterally and put the skin to the rails. I find this “split” skin to have amazing grip to weight ratio, is faster sliding on the flats ie. better glide, and costs less. YMMV.

    does this really matter? any skier that bitches about not wanting to wait for you to take 1-2 extra minutes at the top is a douche bag. tell them to chill the fuck out and enjoy the scenery. if they had to wait 2 minutes for you at 5 transitions that is only 10minutes added on to their day. I highly doubt that is going to ruin their day or amount of laps they can do. I have done a handful of skimos races and when competing against a group of skiers in the same fitness level as me I find that I pass a lot of them on the up or at least keep up, fly by them on the down, and lose a little at the transitions. when you add it all up I find that the times are about the same between us.

    the only time I can see an issue with this is when you are with a super fast group that is going to be 5-10 minutes ahead of you anyway. or if you are in a larger group with varying speeds and you end up being last, then the leader can end up waiting for you for a while. really I find that wait times are based more on the speed that you skin at and not the transition. if you keep up with the group you can transition before your skier friend can tell if his gopro is on or not.

    Great comment, except for the whole self serving guide comment. Try not to spam up this thread with your self promoting.

    Im digging on Flylows stuff. Granted, I seal gloves in exchange for gear, but the bibs that are coming out in December are effing sick, tough and designed for the bc.

    Resort and low snow days = Chemical Pant, the toughest pant I have ever worn. And I absolutely destroy stuff.
    BC and high snow days = Tha’ Bibs.
