How to not catch on wood rails
I saw some threads already posted about this, but most lack in detail about what to directly do to your skis. My main question is just how dull or what to do to your skis in order to never catch on a wooden rail or log. Line is the main group I see use these the most, and they just set it up in the woods, with no ice or anything done to the object (I would assume). I have an urban pair of skis, so whatever would need to be done, I'm open to suggestions. Thanks guys, +k to legitamate responses
it just had to be a hard wood and it slides better then you think. soft woods dont work.
if its not working poor water on it and let it freeze
Yeah like SDrvper said, hardwood such as maple or oak would work better than the soft stuff such as pine or any type of pulp wood. I guess the only ting I could recommend is have your edges that are making contact not very sharp and keep your leading edges off the wood to you don't risk them catching (In other words have a wide stance when on the rail.
