    I'd spot treat with liquid nikwak - apply to the spot at rub like heck, then wash per nikwax instructions.
    this - except blot, not rub. we had a morning of freezing rain that coated the lifts then melted up at greek peak and just trashed my jacket with grease spots. i thought it was a goner but mrs snobunski made the save

    Here's an odd fact I learned this Winter. Mt Snow uses a water based grease on the sheave bearings. I guess it has something to do with National Forestland requirements. Anyways, what usually drips on you is the dust from the sheaves. I've found that washing a jacket with Nikwax washer usually does the trick.

    We dont have that problem at whiteface. The lazy bastards don't grease anything. Then they look at each other funny when the lifts keep breaking down.
