1) Use strips of paper grocery bags and a warm iron to remove dirty glue and embedded debris.
2) Spread on a new thin layer of Gold Label Adhesive.
3) Iron the new glue into the old glue using the original shiny-backed release paper that came with your skins.
To clean up hands and tools when you're done use Denatured Alcohol.
A method for removing gunk and debris from your climbing skins and to reapply new glue. I like this method because it's clean and easy. I don't claim to be *The Expert*, this is just what has worked for me, and I welcome advice, corrections and alternative methods.
There are core experiences that define a mountain biker. Like venturing into unfamiliar mountains to find amazing trails chiseled into the landscape, and then pushing your limits, against all common sense for the pure thrill of it. These experiences are woven into the psyche of every mountain biker. Jared Graves is not an ordinary rider. The reigning Enduro World Series champion is considered one of the most versatile mountain bikers in the world and when not racing, he’s all about having good times on the bike. “It’s all about going out in the bush with your mates and riding natural terrain, whatever you can find really and just having fun.” Following his victory at the Whistler EWS, Jared traveled deep into the Kootenay region of British Columbia.

On September 29th 2014, I lost my two best friends JP Auclair and Andreas Fransson in an avalanche on Monte San Lorenzo near the border of Chile and Argentina. It has now been one year since the accident.
I created a film to celebrate and remember our lovely friends. This film is from our last years together where we skied, worked and had amazing adventures together. We went to Chamonix, Norway and Chile.
Andreas, JP, Daniel Rönnbäck and I started a project together called, Apogée, which means – The highest point in the developing of something. The project was Andreas and JP’s idea, travel to magnificent destinations and create beautiful, touching ski movies to inspire others around the world.
