Hey folks-

Anyone have a suggestion for a ski scraper to remove slush ice if I encounter it while out trekking across a like/etc? Last year I didnt have any and I hit some slush on a -10/-15 degree day and my skis were instantly useless.

I'm interested in something I can buy or something I can make (DIY)!

Thanks!

Cedarleaf

I carry a plastic putty knife to scrape the bottom of my toboggan.

+1 Only suggestion is that you buy a bright colored one in case it slips out of your hands.
