This winter has been all over the place. We started out with loads of snow, went for a while without, got dumped on, then another snow holiday with warm weather (for Summit County) followed by some recent amazing snow.
All this changing weather has brought along varied conditions. During the dry spells the snow got progressively firmer as more skiers got out and packed it down. Sharp skis handle this kind of snow better than ones with dull edges. Getting your skis tuned will get you those sharper edges as well as a nicely waxed base for great edge hold as well as consistent and fast sliding.
Skiing when there hasn’t been fresh snow for a while will wear down your edges more quickly than fresh powder. Rocks and grit in the snow will also take their toll on your gear. A fresh tune will give your skis a new lease on life. You’ll definitely notice the difference after a professional tune.
If you are in the mood for a change and want to try a new feel on the slopes, come see us in Breckenridge for a ski rental. Both demo skis and performance rental skis are tuned before every rental so you get to experience the skis at their best. We can generally provide overnight tunes for you if you get us your skis in the afternoon and we open at 8:00 am so you can pick up your skis and still make first chair.
Our Wintersteiger TrimJet edge machine along with our S 300 stone grinder will give you the racer’s edge you are looking for (sorry couldn’t resist) to make your days on the slopes more enjoyable. So try some new gear, tune up your current gear and make sure you get the most out of winter, the spring thaw is right around the corner!
