WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO TUNE YOUR SKIS AT THE END OF THE SEASON?


Bases

The thick coating of storage wax will keep the bases from drying out during summer and prevents the edges from rusting. When next season starts, you’ll need to scrape everything off—be especially careful around the edges. During spring skiing especially, dirt, tree sap, oils and base-clogging compounds can make their way into the snow. It is important to remove these compounds before putting your gear away for the season. If left to fester in the pores of your base, these compounds can break down the base material and make it less receptive to holding wax next season.


Edges

File off any burs or bring them in for an end-of season tune.


Bindings

(Do Not) relax binding springs or remove snowboard bindings. If you had any binding issues during the season bring them in for repair or evaluation while shops aren’t too busy.


Storage

Store skis and snowboards in a cool dry place, not in a hot attic. Loosely strap your skis from base to base and place them in a natural position, with no pressure on the camber, rocker or brakes. If you use a ski/snowboard bag, make sure it’s clean inside. A strong warning: do not strap your skis in a way that compresses the camber or rocker. This can cause warping.


Come into our stores for tuning supplies or let us do it for you.

It's been a great season and now we're looking forward to more days outside on the tennis courts and on the water!
