    Servicing - FAQs

    Q: Does grinding the base and sharpening the edges reduce the life of my skis?

    A: This depends on how much material is taken away (ground away) each time they are serviced. We only lightly grind the base in order to preserve the life of your skis or snowboard. Also, because we use a ceramic disc edger (rather than a coarse file or belt) the edges are returned to a factory finish without overly reducing the life of the skis.


    Q: How often should I have my equipment serviced?

    A: You will normally find that your skis or snowboard servicing will (at the least) need waxing and edging after every trip. The bases may also need some attention, but this is dependant on the snow conditions you had on your trip. If you had lots of snow and didn't hit any rocks then the bases may well be OK.


    Q: How long do I need to leave my equipment with you?

    A: We aim to work on a week turn around during the ski season. Priority servicing may be available at an additional cost.


    Q: Are there any steps I should take to keep my equipment in good condition?

    A: Apart from the obvious things such as avoiding rocks, having regular services and generally being careful when transporting your equipment (by using a padded bag or hard case for example). It is also a good idea to thoroughly dry the edges of your skis or snowboard at the end of each trip. Having your skis serviced and "laid up" for the summer after your last trip of the season will also stop the bases from drying out. It is better to keep your equipment in a stable temperature environment when not in use (as opposed to a hot attic or cold cellar).
