Having sharp edges, a flat base, and a good wax job can make all the difference between an epic and terrible day. Depending on how often you go to the mountain, you may only need to get your skis or snowboard tuned once per year; if you ride a lot you may need work done weekly. Whether you go to a professional or do it yourself, there is always some tuning you can easily perform at home with the right tools. Skis and snowboards normally come from the factory with a finished tune that includes a flat base and smooth, sharp edges. Ski and snowboard edges can also be sharpened and maintained by hand, and the skills can be learned by anyone with moderate coordination and desire to master them. Tools needed to perform this work include a flat file, file guide s with appropriate steel or diamond files to accurately maintain base edge and side edge bevel, a gummy stone for smoothing and a file card or wire brush for keeping the files clean. In a pinch you can perform this work on a table with a couple of 4x4s under the ends of your skis or board make sure you have a wall to keep them from sliding or propped up diagonally against a table or counter, but it makes the work more difficult. Retract the ski brakes before you start and use a thick rubber band stretched between the brake arms and over the heel piece to keep them out of the way. Snowboards can usually be tuned by simply folding the highback forward. If you have burrs in your edges from hitting rocks or other objects, you may have trouble removing them with a regular file.
A ski or snowboard tune maximizes performance and equipment lifespan and is an important step in skiing or snowboarding well. Drop off your gear at Squaw Valley or Alpine Meadows for all of your tuning and repair needs.
The earliest recorded ski wax was pine tar, and it was used to coat wooden skis to prevent them from absorbing water. Ski wax technology didn t experience a breakthrough until , when a chemical company and an Olympic skier developed a synthetic wax together. The formula is not too different from the ski waxes that are in use today. So, how often should you wax your skis? The answer varies. Depending on the conditions, you may need to wax after every ski practice or every week. Similarly, you may need to use tuning tools weekly or daily to tighten up your bindings -- although, that usually applies more to snowboards. Your skis should be sharp enough to slice off the top of your nail - if they are too blunt to do this, ski sharpening is required. Learning how to wax your skis is important. First, secure the breaks out of the way and wipe the skis with a little alcohol to remove any rust and dust. Drip the wax onto the skis, moving down the blade until the entire surface is covered in wax. By the time you have reached the opposite end, the first end should be dry. Once the wax has dried, use a plastic scraper to remove excess wax. Use a brush to remove any residual wax.
