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.
