Ski & Board Tuning Service

Jon offers various specifications off hand tuning for your skis or snowboard as detailed below.
Unlike the majority of stores we do not just blindly machine grind the ski/board bases & edges which results in excessive & unnecessary material removal.
 
All work on skis is preceded by a visual binding check & tightening of the mounting screws if necessary. Snowboard bindings to be removed by customer prior to drop off. Prices apply to both skis and snowboards. Specialist waxes (ie dry slope, indoor snow or race etc) can be substituted upon request.
 
A While-U-Wait &/or Out of Hours service is also available by appointment - see below for the additional costs.
