On the Spot Quick Wax, Anytime!

  • Applies a warm layer of wax to the ski or board that helps with glide and reduces the amount of energy used to turn the ski or board, so you can spend your time enjoying more runs!
  • This service is dependent on the temperature of the equipment (equipment must be at room temperature to soak up the wax) and the business level in the shop

Infrared Hot Wax 

  • Deep wax conditioning treatment that allows the wax to saturate the base material of the skis or board more fully than the traditional ironing and thermal bag/hot boxing can accomplish
  • Extremely sustainable and uses very little wax
  • Helps protect the bases of your skis or snowboard by not applying direct heat

Stone Grind Finish

  • Creates more surface area for the wax to absorb into and last longer
  • Helps skis or boards slide better in varying conditions

Ceramic Edge Sharpening and Polishing

  • Takes less material off; leaving a finer, smoother, and cleaner surface polish that improves the turning qualities of your ski or board
  • Prolongs the life of your equipment, and keeps the angle on the side edges of your ski or board precise

Base Repair

  • Keeps the ski/board watertight to avoid any further damage and helps to glide smoother across the snow

Annual Binding Adjustment and Test

  • Recommended every season
  • First, our manufacturer trained technician will look to see if the bindings are still indemnified by the manufacturer. If they are not, we can’t proceed with the adjustment and testing of the binding. Money paid will be credited toward a Ski Package
  • Next, using our state-of-the-art Wintersteiger Safetrinic testing machine, we make sure the release pressure of the boot from the binding system is correct according to your height, weight, age, skier type, and boot sole length. This way we can maximize your safety for the season.
  • All of our rental equipment is tested this way before the season starts
