Here is a useful technique for folding climbing skins for the backcountry skier or snowboarder. Take a sharpie and mark the center point of the skins on the glue side. When folding the skins, grab this center point in one hand and pull it though your thumb and forefinger. The thumb and forefinger form a grove which makes the glue sides of the skins align correctly against themselves. This technique works especially well in windy conditions.
