Spring is the best time for ski touring – corn snow, sunshine and warm temps. Okay, powder skiing is tough to beat, but sometimes you get that in the spring, too. Spring does require a little extra skin care to avoid the dreaded "glomping." Here are some skin care tips, useful for the Imperial Challenge and 5 Peaks as well.
  1. All Hagan climbing skins have a special anti-icing and anti-glomping treatment - and are 100% mohair, which has much better anti-icing properties than lower quality skins. Eventually the treatment wears off, so we recommend...
  2. Periodically applying Hagan Dry Climb skin treatment fluid to your skins. This is a simple process, but needs to be done in advance to let the fluid set. Dry Climb fluid should be reapplied every five outings or so. When you forget to prepare in advance...
  3. Always carry skin wax with you. Hagan Skin Waxis specially designed for climbing skins, but any stick wax will do. Having skin wax on hand could rescue you from some very frustrating experiences with glomping on your spring tours. But better, prepare ahead of time with Dry Climb fluid. 

And as a bonus to preventing icing, the Hagan Dry Climb fluid improves glide as well.

I don't read French (my German is fair), but I know how to use web translators. According to the inter web, this is what the French Montagnes Magazine said about the Hagan Boost 94: (excerpts, click the link below to read the entire review in French)

  • The Big Surprise of this Season
  • excellent stability even at high speeds
  • A model that is not unlike the behaviour of the Salomon Explore 95 but with greater rigidity.
  • This ski becomes our favourite of this 2020 range
  • slips very clearly in the first place of these tests.
  • enormous carbon-filled shovel erases all the roughness of the terrain 
  • unparalleled driving comfort in deep or trafficked snow
  • turns are easy to make

Tips for getting the best performance from Hagan hybrid climbing skins:

Tip 3. If it is quite cold and you have snow crystals on the skins, wipe them across your thigh a time or two to brush off the snow/ice. Because they aren't traditional glue, that quite effectively removes the snow (without sticking to your pants.)

With these tips, you will really enjoy the handling advantages and not needing to store them with plastic foils - ever!
