performance and safety.

Sturtevant’s & Ski Mart will give you a great

experience on the mountain.

TUNING & REPAIRS KNOWLEDGE BASE

If you maintain your gear regularly, it will perform better and last longer.


How many times should I get my skis tuned?

Skis and snowboards should be tuned every 5-6 times out on the mountains for the best performance and safety. Early season or manmade snow will pull the wax off your equipment and you may need to get your equipment waxed more frequently.

Close


Do I need to make an appointment for tuning or repairs?

No appointments are needed, you can come by anytime we’re open!

Close


How much time does tuning or repairs typically take?

We strive towards a 24-hour turnaround on most tuning and repair services, but seasonality and volume can impact our turnaround time. We do have the option for expedited service at an additional $25 if you’re in a time crunch.

Close


How do I know that I need my equipment tuned?

If your skis/snowboard start to feel slow, or if you have a hard time holding your turns, you’re probably due for a tune.

Close


What types of damages are urgent to repair?

If you have any deep cuts in your equipment especially if the core of the ski or snowboard is showing. If the damage is left untreated water and snow will start to rot the core of the ski from the inside. If you’ve got a break or significant damage to your edges, your skis or snowboard’s ability to ride will be severely impacted and potentially dangerous.

Close


How do I know if my edges are dull?

Test 3-5 spots up and down both the inside and outside edges by running the top of your fingernail over the edge. If you feel a little bite to your nail as you drag it across the edge – the edge is sharp. If your fingernail ever feels like it slides across the edge smoothly, as if the edge were rounded and not sharp, this may be an indication that the edge might not be sharp enough to ski or board on with confidence.

Close


Is tuning necessary with the purchase of a ski or snowboard?

Most manufacturers prep their equipment to ski/ride off the shelf. If you purchase a snowboard or skis from us that require tuning, we are happy to offer a new ski/snowboard tune as a complementary service to your purchase.

Close


Are any tuning or repairs services included with my season rental?

Waxing is a free service that is offered to season renters at no additional cost.

Close


Do you offer ski racing tuning services?

We offer race tuning services at some of our locations with large racing communities.

Close


What do I need to bring for mounting/binding services?

Before doing any work that requires us to touch bindings – your boots need to be present.

Close


How do I know if my gear is damaged beyond repair?

This will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Bring your gear in and one of our expert techs will assess the damage and give you honest advice on necessary repairs (or suggestions for 2nd life opportunities for your gear... shot skis, anyone?)
