Where Does Ice Slicer Come From?

Ic slicer
Redmond’s, and Ice Slicer’s, story begins in 1958, when a prolonged drought forced the Bosshardt brothers to abandon their farm in central Utah. Aware that Native Americans had once harvested salt rock from their farmland, Milo and Lamar Bosshardt borrowed a little money and went into the salt business with little more than sledgehammers, picks, and a determination to provide for their families.

In the 1960s, local governments realized that Redmond’s unique mineral salt melted road ice more efficiently than traditional white salt, and Redmond began marketing crushed salt as a premium road deicing salt. The product would later be known as Ice Slicer.


Milo and Lamar believed in their mineral salt with their whole hearts. They knew it was special and so do we. We are proud to share nature’s most potent deicer with snow fighters, commercial properties, and homes in 30+ states. Our natural deicer offers drivers the peace of mind that snow fighters have the most powerful, granular deicing weapon available.


Ice Slicer is a proud partner of Utah Snow Fighters. We strongly support USF’s mission and join them in their efforts to keep our roads safe. Without first responders, so many of us would not make it to work safely on those icy winter mornings. Ice Slicer is thankful for the diligent efforts of snow fighters across this country who protect the public, clear roads, prevent accidents, and keep our economy pumping.


Ice Slicer is honored to partner with The National Coalition for Open Roads (NCFOR), an association devoted to educating policymakers, transportation professionals, snow fighters, media, and the general public on best practices for winter road maintenance; promoting increased winter road maintenance budgets throughout the country; and recognizing and developing an awareness of snow fighters as first responders.
