Ski service

Ski and board service at the Alpine Room

Why have your skis or board serviced?

The importance of ski or board service is to combat base distortion and wear which will affect your skis or boards performance.

Bases suffer from scrapes and gouges where we have gone over stones or rocks, the edges suffer from burrs, nicks and rust can appear after use, which diminishes edge grip. Waxing bases protects them from moisture penetrating the base and will create more of a glide effect over the snow giving you a smoother, faster run.

We use a Montana Crystal Glide Stone Grinder

Our Montana Crystal Glide stone grinder grinds a unique diamond structured base pattern to optimize gliding performance. If required the base pattern can be adjusted to suit particular snow conditions. Alpine Room ski workshop

This results in optimal ski performance, full carving effect plus increased safety and turning properties.

All services are carried out in our in-store workshop (pictured right) by experienced technicians who will be pleased to advise on your equipment if required.

Please note: do try and bring your skis and boards in early to make sure we can fit them in. Ski service gets very busy!
