Peter Arlein Shares his mountainFLOW ‘No petroleum’ EcoWax Success [EP 423]

Today, I’m speaking with Peter Arlein, Founder and CEO of mountainFLOW eco-wax.

Peter has been in the Outdoor Industry for over 20 years working as a ski patroller and raft guide.

In 2016 he started MountainFLOW eco-wax with a straightforward mission: provide a simple and eco-friendly way to improve the skiing experience. Their first product was a water-based anti-stick spray that reduced snow and ice buildup on top of skis.

Located in Carbondale CO they’ve since added more ski bike products to the line.
