I am new to the skiing game, just started getting some backcountry gear together to make rock/ice climbing approaches easier in the winter (and to have some fun).
I read about all these different wax jobs for XC skis (kick wax for grip going uphill?) and likewise - wax jobs for downhill skiing (glide wax for extra slipperyness on the downhill?).
Now I understand that there is no need for XC style wax jobs because I will be using skins, but do people wax their touring skis (under the skins) for extra glide on the downhill? I would like to maximise my downhill enjoyment, but it got me thinking that the wax might interfere with the skins when it is time to get back up the hill.
(PS: I am not talking about waxing skins to stop snow clumping).
