BACKWARDS hairies?

Postby JeffOYB » Fri Jan 06, 2017 5:04 pm

Anyone hear of this? I'm tempted to try it since my regular direction wasn't working so hot the last time. Google Peter Hale's advice on hairies. He says some conditions want sanding from tail to tip. ?

i haven't gotten the nerve or the chance yet. we lost our snow. i was wondering if anyone else had tried it. or if it's known to be good in certain times. Peter Hale mentioned a case location but didn't give particulars. well, i'll try it when we get more snow then report back. ...i need better wide temp range kick w my hairies.

(i'm assuming the Blizzard Chemical skis are hairies since they mention sanding to refresh them, but i'm not positive that was the total design function scope of the rubbery-based nowax skis.)
