use wax instead of sandpaper if you dont live in a surf area try other kinds of wax: candle, +beeswax..that might be cool beeswax... but seriously most skate shops even sell sexwax (a popular brand of surf wax) yes i think skaters use it for ....... well i have no idea what they use it for but i know it would be more comfy, and probably more grippy than foty-grit.
i use Sexwax .....but for snow? keep in mind what the temperature rating on the wax is. id try a cheep wax, or stiky bumps wax somthing tacky
i would say if you cant get sticky bumps sex wax or mrs.palmers use gulf wax for canning it is available at hardware stores and some foodstores and was the original surf wax
DO NOT USE SANDPAPER, FIBERGLASS -DOES- SCRATCH, AND DONT TRY A WOOD BOARD IN SNOW=]
they use it to wax rails so when you grind on them the board doesn't stand still and you fly forward.

Me and my friends learned how to shove-it on a slip and slide. We did these amazing tricks. We slid on two boards and jumped on one right in the middle of the slip and slide and we reversed it.
For the top of the board, surfboard wax, or even some types of candle wax may work better then sandpaper. The wax will make your feet stick to the board, especialy if you are barefoot. Plus you won't have the problem of retaping the sandpaper when/if it comes off, and if doesn't hurt quite as much if you happen to fall. Wax is a little more forgiving. Anyway, up to you.
