Are you a seasoned skier looking for the best ski tuning service in Salt Lake City, Utah?
Whether you have skis, snowboards, or any other type of winter sports equipment, getting them tuned up can really improve how they work. Tuning up your equipment will sharpen them so you get the best performance possible. Here are some things to know about getting your skis tuned up and the best ski tuning service in Salt Lake City.
Maintain Your Ski Equipment
Ski and snowboard gear needs to be maintained for optimal performance. Skis and snowboards are typically made of wood and fiberglass in the core, with stainless steel edges and special plastic bases. Over time (usually 7-10 days on snow), various bits of dirt particles in the snow wear down the fine edge and the wax gets rubbed out of the bases. The decrease in edge grip is noticeable as well as the ability of skis and snowboards to slide on snow.
How often should you get yours skis tuned?
Some people will tune up their equipment once a year, but if you’re an avid skier, you’ll probably need to tune your skis more often. Here at White Cloud Concierge we recommend getting your skis tuned after approximately 10 days on snow. Make sure to do your research and purchase the best ski tuning service in Salt Lake City so your ski tune will last on the slopes. Some budget ski tuning options will only provide a quick hot wax and stone grind which may not met your skiing needs and will not last as long on your equipment.
Get A Professional To Tune Your Skis
If you have never had your skis tuned up before, you might want to consider hiring someone who knows how to do it. There are many ski shops in Salt Lake City that offer tuning services, but White Cloud Concierge offers pickup and delivery ski tuning.
Proper tuning will make you feel the difference between a good and a bad turn in the snow. You can usually tell if your skis need to be waxed if the base of your skis are discolored and look a bit grey and feel dry instead of slightly waxy. The last thing you want to do is turn and have a bad tumble down the hills because your skis aren’t tuned up properly.
