Ski Snowboard Servicing Tuning Tuition
Would you like to learn how to service, tune and maintain your own Skis and Snowboards ?
There’s less to it than you might first think. Almost any Skiers or Snowboarders can apply a coat of wax, scrape and finish the base to a reasonably good standard. But of course, it’s “how” you apply it and how you scrape and finish it. Its the final techniques that makes all the difference to how the Skis or Board will glide.
From simple DIY edge sharpening to advanced base and wax preparation, we want you to get the best performance and return on investment for your Skis and Snowboards as you possibly can – good maintenance is key to this.
We can offer tuition on any day except Sunday in the summer season from May to October.
There is limited availability in the Winter months as we get too busy to be able to offer the tuition but we won’t rule it out. Just give us a call or emails and we’ll check the diaries.
The cost for the tuition is £50.00 on a one to one basis or £45.00 per person for groups of 2 people in the same session (why not bring a friend ?) All tools and waxes are included and why not bring your own Skis or Board to work on. You’ll end up with a free service if you do.
The DIY course is a full morning or afternoon session depending on your requirements or our availability.
