Belt Hot Wax - An automated machine-driven process that leaves your ride fresh and ready. The basic quick wax. (wax applied by heated belt, scraped, and buffed)

Hand Hot Wax - The hand wax offers a fine attention to detail that can't compare to a heartless machine. We'll be sure to cover those hard to reach places. For the hand wax, we use temperature specific wax that is applied by iron and thoroughly heated, cooled, scraped, and then brushed with a bronze brush. Then it's brushed again with nylon and finally horse hair. Very thorough.

Belt Grind -  The belt grind is a form of base flattening using 5 different gritted lubricated belts. It removes imperfections; it also smoothes and flattens out the base of the ski or board so you're reducing friction and getting a smooth ride.
Edge Grind -  Our edge grind is a form of side edge beveling and sharpening that leaves your edges in prime condition for tearing through snow. In addition this process also removes oxidation and nicks or burrs from the edges by grinding the ski or snowboard against a lubricated beveled belt.  The result is edges that perform better and last longer.

De-Tune - This is the process of dulling your ski/snowboard edges at the tip and tail. Although some people find the concept of de-tuning counterintuitive, it is actually performed as a means of reducing the ski’s tendency to "hook" the snow during the turn. If you have a tendency to “catch an edge,” your skis may need a bit of de-tuning. Also many park and pipe riders like their ski or board to have a "heavy de-tune" so they don't catch edges on boxes or rails and some just want that "buttery" feel. Ask for a "heavy de-tune" if this applies to you.

Minor P-Tex - Up to 4" of P-Tex drip candle applied to fix gouges and scrapes on the base that do not penetrate completely through the base material.

Base Weld - When a rock or other element damages the bottom of your ride, it can leave a deep enough impression in your base to expose the ski or snowboard's core. This is affectionately known as a core shot. The process of fixing a core shot involves heating, laying and compressing new base material into the repaired area to seal from water and protect the core of the ski or board from the elements so your ride will propel you down the mountain consistently for years to come.
