SO YOU HAVE MORE FUN ON THE HILL!
It’s easy to explain why.
1. Less energy needed and lower risk of accidents
Professional edge grinding ensures uncompromising grip even in icy slope conditions. This saves energy and increases safety.
Together they create a feeling on the slopes which you’ll never want to be without again!
2. Easier to turn and glide
Optimum structured base ensures the perfect “turning moment” and smooth easy gliding in all snow conditions.
Ski & Snowboard Analysis
After each day of skiing or riding you should thoroughly inspect your equipment for wear or damage, things to look out for are:
Dull, rounded edges
Dull, rounded edges or damage such as nicks or burrs. If your edges are worn your ski/board will want to continually slip out from under you while making turns, Dull edges will no longer grip the snow helping you carve your turns. Worn edges can be particularly hard to ski/ride on firm or icy snow conditions. Using PROFESSIONAL side edge tools combined with either diamond stones or files, you can quickly bring back that new ski feel with a few simple steps. The base edge can only be sharpened at your local WINTERSTEIGER repair shop, O.W. Sports, and any work you do at home to the base edge will only increase the base edge bevel. We do full edge repair and can make most edges sharp again.
Damage to the base
When inspecting your equipment also look for damage to the base such as scratches or deep gouges. Even small scratches can impede glide and can lead to more damage if not repaired. Drip Candles are the easiest way to repair scratches and damage to the base on skis and snowboards. Deep gouges, which penetrate to the core, or run along the steel edges, need to be repaired by us and we will assess each piece of equipment when you bring it in. We do full base repairs ranging from p-texing deep gauges to getting bases flat after years without a tune-up.
As you ski/ride the wax wears from the base due to friction and will leave it with a dry, fuzzy, gray appearance. By applying a fresh coat of wax you will refresh the base and improve the glide while conditioning it against oxidation. The wax will wear quickly, especially on dry snow and should be re-applied after every 2 to 4 days of use. When you bring your equipment in to us, we will wax your base as part of our tuning service insuring you get maximum glide on the snow.
