I did a little research on how to remove skin glue from ski bases, one post on TGR had a few ideas, one was to heat the glue up and scrape it off, another was to use white gas and just clean it off. Starting with the heating and scraping idea, I was unable to make much progress at all, so I switched over to the white gas approach. There was a lot of glue on the bases, but eventually by using a bunch of steel wool and white gas, I was able to get it all off. It took several passes to get rid of the glue, then I switched to a t-shirt rag to do the finishing touches.
and the after
Will it work? I'm hoping to take the skis and skins out for a little tour up in Breckenridge to find out. I definitely don't want to get on anything too committing or lengthy without knowing for sure the glue stuck to the skin debacle won't happen again.
