We are a full service repair and maintenance shop. We know how important your equipment is to you and we want to help you keep it in shape for optimum performance and safety. Our skilled technicians have years of experience and will always give you an honest assessment of what should be done to get your gear in top shape for the season.

Even the best ski or board base won't last forever. Ice and rocks scratch the base and damage the edges. The ski or the board's capacity to turn and glide is enormously reduced, you have to use more strength and you tire out faster.

How often you tune your skis and boards depends on snow conditions, the terrain, and your level of performance.

ESKIMO recommends a tuning:

  • Before your first day out on the snow.
  • After about 6-8 days on the slopes you should get at least a wax. We can advise you as to any other needs at that time.
  • At the end of the season we recommend a full tune without scraping off the wax. This will protect your base and help it absorb as much of the wax as it can.
  • Don't just wax your skis or board without first tuning them as well to store them for the summer!

We recommend having your ski bindings tested for proper release once a year or every 15-20 ski days, whichever comes first.

Boarders should always remember to check to make sure your screws are tight on your bindings everyday!

Major base or edge damages should be checked daily and always repaired immediately!
