In 2016, we formed mountainFLOW eco-wax, formerly known as Snow Shed Wax Company, with a straightforward mission: provide a simple and eco-friendly way to improve the skiing experience. Our first product was a water-based, biodegradable anti-stick spray that reduced snow and ice buildup on top of skis. This product became popular in the backcountry community, where weight is the name of the game. Reducing snow buildup kept skis light and helped skiers to efficiently venture into the mountains without carrying pounds of unnecessary weight.
We soon realized that eco-friendly waxes were a rare commodity in the ski industry. So in 2017 we began testing all-natural, biodegradable base waxes. We were looking for a product that was easy to apply and that was non-hazardous to the environment. With the introduction of our eco-friendly quick wax and skin wax, we decided that it was time to rebrand with a name that more accurately encompassed our mission. Enter mountainFLOW eco-wax.
We're excited to expand our line of eco-friendly waxes. All of our products are easy to apply - no iron or ski vises necessary - and biodegradable. Our hope is that the everyday skier will make the choice to move to a product that works great and is more friendly to our mountain playgrounds.
