A new tech­nol­ogy from DPS Skis might for­ever re­place the peren­nial chore of wax­ing your boards. The com­pany is call­ing it Phan­tom, a one-time ap­pli­ca­tion of a patented liq­uid lu­bri­ca­tion that per­me­ates the base of the ski and lasts for­ever. While it’s not as il­lus­tri­ous as pol­ished wax, there’s no clean up or sore thumbs, since there’s no scrap­ing. Phan­tom works on all skis on all tem­per­a­tures of snow, and after a sea­son of test­ing Phan­tom in the An­des, the di­rec­tor of heli-ski­ing at Valle Ne­vado, Clau­dio Igle­sias, is giv­ing it two thumbs up. It’ll put you back roughly $100, but will surely be on ev­ery ski bum’s wish list this holiday sea­son.
