How To Tune Skis

Why is ski tuning important?

Safety, performance and overall enjoyment of skiing all come to mind. The majority of ski tuning can be accomplished at home by any do-it-yourself skier. Daily or weekly wax applications are a fundamental ski-health practice, just like taking vitamins. Edge maintenance and sharpening can be done quickly and with confidence when using the correct tools. Significant edge or base repair might be the best example of when you should seek professional help from your local "Ski Doctor." If you are not sure, too busy, or just plain afraid of it, don't worry. Find a ski shop you trust and give them plenty of time to get your sleds back into shape.
