Waxing and Tuning Services
Proper tuning of your downhill skis will keep you gliding along smoothly and having fun on the snowy slopes.
Tuning your skis involves three primary steps:
- Base repair
- Edge work
How do you know if you need to tune your skis?
First, look at the bases for scrapes. Big holes that expose the core usually need to be repaired by a shop equipped to weld in new base material, but smaller scrapes and gouges can easily be fixed at home.
Next, examine the edges for rust and small burrs.
Minor edge work is easy to do at home, but extensive repairs and sharpening are best done at a ski shop.
Always finish up your tuning by waxing your skis.
It’s also recommended that you wax your skis throughout the ski season even if you’re not doing base or edge repairs. You can’t wax your skis too frequently; the more you do it, the faster your skis will glide.
There is a HKD $330 up for waxing and tuning services charge with new skis and snowboards. For old skis and snowboards there is a HKD $380 up. Normally, waxed skis and snowboards can be picked up within 2 weeks. For special request pick up, there is a HKD $50 for 1 week, and HKD $100 for 1-2 days.
