Tune Up Ski Equipment, Plan Your Breckenridge Rentals

It is officially fall. The local ski areas are only days away from firing up their snow making machines and all of us at A Racer’s Edge are getting excited about the upcoming season.

To start, we are getting a new piece of tuning equipment. The Wintersteiger TrimJet is a state of the art, fully automated, completely programmable edge grinding machine. It tunes both the side and base edges for a perfect tune every time. Bring your skis in before you head out this season for the ultimate in edge grip.

We carry Rossignol, Fischer and Kastle skis in a wide range of shapes and styles. If you have been looking for a modern powder ski, we have Rossi Soul 7s as well as Kastle BMX 108s. Both are superb performers both in the powder and on the groomers. Our rental ski lineup also includes carving skis with some great all around skis as well.

Consider a rental from A Racer’s Edge when you have visitors, too. Your guests will save money and effort by not having to fly with their gear. On top of the convenience they can find out what gear they may want to upgrade to in the future.

There is nothing like a well-tuned pair of skis to make your day go from good to great on the slopes in Breckenridge.

Come in and see us soon…winter is right around the corner!

Time to Check Your Ski Equipment & Think About What to Rent

Where has the summer gone?! The ski areas are going to be vying for ‘first to open’ bragging rights any day now! It’s time to think about getting your gear ready for the new season.

How are your boots? Were you experiencing a little discomfort last year? A lot of discomfort? The boot fitters at A Racer’s Edge can reduce the pain and actually make your boots feel great! Call to schedule an appointment with us. Our reputation as the top boot fitter in Breckenridge means high demand for boot work as ski season approaches. Our foot beds and alignment services are second to none.

Early season skiing, however, is typically a bit ‘firmer’, to put it nicely. Sharpened edges and a new coat of wax will do wonders to make the new snow a joy to be on.

If your skis weren’t keeping a perma-grin on your face last season, maybe it is time to think about new skis rather than just a tune. Taking your first runs in Breckenridge on a ski equipment rental can help you find the right new skis by letting you try out our selection of demo skis. We have everything from the latest in rockered powder skis to more traditional end front side carvers. Talk to us about how you ski and we can help you choose the right skis for your style of skiing. You can also switch out skis with us if you find you’d like to try something else.

So what do you think? Will Arapahoe Basin beat Loveland Ski Area for ‘first to open’?
