Getting out on the slopes with a well tuned pair of skis is what we live for. Getting out there on the first real snowfall of winter is even better – unless you’re skis are still seeing the wear from last season’s use. We like heading for the hills as soon as the snow hits in the fall which is why we tune our skis the previous spring.
Beating all the fall crowds by tuning at the end of the ski season is simple, but it’s a pro tip. Once you get that final spring ski tuning in, you get to look forward to hitting the slopes instead of trying to remind yourself to tune those skis all summer.
Once you reach the point where you’re pretty sure it’ll be your last ski day for the year, drop them off for a tuning and let your ski tuner know you’ll be putting them in storage. They’ll pay special attention to getting the skis tuned and smoothing out any damage you may have done during the season. We’ll remove any burs that could lead to rust, and we’ll even apply a generous waxing that will keep the metal from oxidizing while in storage for a few months. We’ve been a pro ski tuner in Breckenridge for a long time and we know how well a storage wax job can help you be ready for the fall!
