NORTH AMERICAN'S ONLY PLANT-BASED SKI WAX!
THAT WORKS every bit as well as traditional waxes, so you don't sacrifice performance for the environment. For context, nearly all ski wax is made from petroleum. WHICH MEANS... whatever we put on our skis quickly ends up in the snowpack and then in local rivers and lakes.
As your skis slide on the snow, small pieces of the wax are pulled out of your bases and into the snowpack. With a traditional ski wax, petroleum and/or fluorocarbon particles are transported into the snowpack and eventually into the watershed. With mountainFLOW’s wax, only pieces of all-natural, plant wax are introduced into the environment.
Yikes Fact: Some 2.5 million pounds of ski wax was introduced into the snow pack last year (and probably the year before that and before that). That's a heck of a lot of petroleum impact on the environment... and we haven't even started chatting about the negative impact of drilling and refining.

ABOUT THE COMPANY
MountainFlOW started in 2016, funded by a kickstarter campaign (Don't you just love when a dream comes true?). They are the ONLY plant-based, non-petroleum manufacturer of ski wax in North America. Here's what they have to say:
We believe that eco-friendly and high performance should not be mutually exclusive. We design all of our products with these standards in mind and are proud to be leading the industry on both fronts.
When we started mountainFLOW in 2016 we asked ourselves a few questions: “What is missing in the market?” and “How can we improve the skiing experience without introducing toxic chemicals into the mountain environments that we love?”. We found that most ski wax products were toxic to both the user and the environment and determined that there must be a better solution. This led us on a multi-year journey of research, product testing, head scratching, iteration, joy, disappointment, and ultimately a heck of a lot of skiing! We’re not scientists and we’re not chemists but we know what feels good on our skis and what constitutes an environmentally responsible product.
