ECO-MISSION

We believe that eco-friendly and high performance should not be mutually exclusive. We design all of our products with these standards in mind and are proud to be leading the industry on both fronts.

When we started mountainFLOW in 2016 we asked ourselves a few questions: “What is missing in the market?” and “How can we improve the skiing experience without introducing toxic chemicals into the mountain environments that we love?”. We found that most ski wax products were toxic to both the user and the environment and determined that there must be a better solution. This led us on a multi-year journey of research, product testing, head scratching, iteration, joy, disappointment, and ultimately a heck of a lot of skiing! We’re not scientists and we’re not chemists but we know what feels good on our skis and what constitutes an environmentally responsible product. Here are some of the environment friendly features of our products …

USDA Biobased Certified Product

...
"The Biobased label assures a consumer that the product contains a USDA-verified amount of renewable biological ingredients... Biobased products provide all the benefits as conventional products: they are cost-comparative... and perform as well or better than their petroleum-containing counterparts... Biobased products also help us increase our use of renewable resources while decreasing our use of non-renewable resources, such as petroleum. Biobased products displace around 300 million gallons of petroleum per year in the U.S., which is the equivalent of taking 200,000 cars off the road." - USDA Overview

PLANT-BASED

Our line of eco-friendly ski and snowboard waxes are all made from plants. Whereas most ski wax is made from petroleum, created as a by-product of the oil refining process, our wax contains 0% petroleum.

As your skis slide on the snow, small pieces of the wax are pulled out of your bases and into the snowpack. With a traditional ski wax, petroleum and/or fluorocarbon particles are transported into the snowpack and eventually into the watershed. With mountainFLOW’s wax, only pieces of all-natural, plant wax are introduced into the environment.
