Plea for reason in skin track setting
How many times have you struggled up an icy skin track that you personally set the week before? I have of late.
So now that we are weeks into the drought I have to say as a community, Carbondale area at least, we suck at making skin tracks. Me included. I will make the caveat that my skins are a bit thread bare and new ones are on order but I the icy highways heading up marble, williams, etc are forcing me and others to make new tracks, which track up the little bit of powder we have left.
Though when braking trail pushing hard feels good it is not as efficient as kicking it back a notch. This also allows you to follow the next day or ,if the "nice" weather continues to hold, the following week.
I am going to think before I track. Less burn more turns.
