Winter Shop Services
Hot waxing protects your ski bases and facilitates glide on the snow. Our experienced technicians will clean your skis and iron in a glide wax. The ski is then scraped, brushed and polished, and a base binder is applied to the kick zone of classic skis. Your skis are then ready for the kick wax of the day.
Every new pair of skis needs hot waxing. It is also recommended you hot wax your skis every 100km or so. For many people, once a season works well. Bring your skis in as soon as the snow flies so they are fresh and ready for the winter.
- Standard Hot Wax $20 - uses universal glide wax
- Performance Hot Wax $30 - uses low flourinated (LF) glide wax
- Premium Hot Wax $40 - uses two layers of high flourinated (HF) glide wax, an iron-in base binder, and structure can be added if necessary
Hot Tar (for wood skis) $25 - Wood skis need a different kind of base treatment that involves heating pine tar into the ski base using a blow torch. The skis are fully cleaned before this procedure and are ready to wax for the day when you pick your skis up.
Hot Box Wax $25 - This is like a sauna treatment for your skis! Skis are saturated with wax and heated in the hot box (like an oven) for 4-5 hours. The wax deeply penetrates the ski bases and conditions them as if you had hot waxed them 15 times or so. This treatment is recommended in addition to a Performance or Premium Hot Wax.
Grip Zone Prep $15 - This treatment is for classic skis only and concentrates only on the kick zone under your foot. The old, dirty wax is removed and the wax pocket is accurately measured on our camber tester. This zone is then sanded (to ensure the binder wax has good adhesion) and a binder wax is ironed in.
Ski Cleaning $10 - Usually included in the above charges, we occasionally come across skis that are excessively dirty and sticky which require a good deal of elbow grease to clean properly. In these cases we are required to apply this extra cleaning fee.
Skin Replacement $20
Binding Installation $15
