- n. A soft wax used on skis especially for corn snow or crust.
You likely care about other people, spotted owls, the hole in the ozone layer and declining literacy rates, but the truth is you care more about a well placed double pole interval, whether or not the grooming is tight or which klister …
But we had no klister, so instead gooped on sticky purple wax the consistency of chewed bubblegum.
Our final stage, the groomed track of the Owl Creek Trail, had become so soft that only a klister would hold.
The ski conditions quickly changed from very icy to a steady snowfall, so the klister used by the teams was creating challenges for each team's middle man - as they were again skiing classical.
Women looking to capture their man's attention on these cold winter nights should take a lesson from the wax techs putting on clinics, and use the proper application of klister as a romantic lure.
