Take care of your skis now to make them fast for next season and save some $$$.
While there is still a lot of great spring skiing to be had in some areas of the country, a lot of people are already putting the skis away for the summer. It's been a tough winter with scrappy conditions almost everywhere, so we want to help out by making your skis better than new with a stone grind and/or prepping your skis for summer storage.
We're running a stone grinding special that will save you $24 on a grind and hot box treatment. Get your skis shipped to us by April 1 and the stone grind is only $55 (save $20) and extreme hot box treatment $25 (save $4). We do our best work in the summer when we are not rushed and can take the time to get everything perfect, so send your skis to us now and get the best quality work on your skis at the best price of the year.
We are also offering our normal summer wax service for $40 and new this year, at the Boulder shop we'll store your skis for you for an additional $15. The summer wax service includes:
- Brushing with Steel brush to clean and refresh the base
- Cleaning with glide wax cleaner, another brushing. Kick wax cleaning is an extra $10.
- Hot scrape with Holmenkol Alphamix Yellow
- Hot Box saturation treatment
- Hot Box hardening treatment
- Cover the kick zone with tape for classic skis.
We leave the wax on after the second hot box treatment so the skis will be protected and soaking up additional wax all summer. The wax will need to be scraped and brushed before skiing in the fall, which we can do for you for free. This summer wax service cleans out the ski, refreshes the base, and protects it through the summer months, resulting in a faster ski that has more wax in it in the fall.
Less work for you now, faster skis in the fall! Bring in your skis today and don't let them sit dirty for months.
If you're prepping your own skis for the summer, you can follow the same process, but skip the hot boxing part. Glide wax with a soft wax (SkiGo XC Red or Holmenkol Alphamix Yellow) and scrape before it cools. Iron in a thick layer of Red or Blue Wax such as SkiGo XC Red, Holmenkol Beta Mix or Swix CH8 and store them in a clean, cool area free of any flexing.
