                                             Professional Ski Servicing and Repair

What we do:

We offer the highest standards in Ski and Snowboard servicing using a careful balance of our precision Ferrari & Merighi ski service machines ( previously located at the Devon Ski Centre ) combined with hand servicing by our experienced service engineers. We are a family run

business with extremely competitive prices.

Our careful balance of both machine and hand finishing allows us to give a superior finish.

 

All on site:

We perform all work on site using our own machinery. Unlike other retailers that claim to be

'service centres' we do not send any equipment off site. This means that we can offer you a quality

service with short turn-around times whilst your equipment is safe and secure in our premises and not

being transported to another location.

 

Servicing Procedure:

Inspection: Clean and inspect ski / snowboard bases.

Edge Cleaning: Gentle machining of edges to ensure an even finish without excessive material removal.

Base Preparation: Bases are lightly machine ground to remove damaged material.

Base repair: Gouges in the base are carefully hand prepared before being hand filled with PTex base

repair material. Deep gouges exposing the core material are filled using a copolymer for superior

bonding. For aesthetic purposes we fill black base areas with black material and clear / coloured base

area with clear material. Larger areas of damage are carefully patched using new ski base material.

Base re-finishing: Bases are re-finished using our diamond stone grinder.

Edge Sharpening: Gentle sharpening of edges to ensure an even sharpness.

Tuning: Edges are hand tuned for best performance on the slopes.

Second Inspection: Bases and edges are re-inspected to ensure that skis have been serviced to the high quality that we expect.

Waxing: We carefully select which wax to apply depending on your chosen ski resort (i.e. regular or cold wax). For dry ski slope use a special wax is applied. We hot wax by hand with multiple passes to ensure an even finish with maximum base penetration. The wax is then polished for an ultra-smooth finish.

If requested we then apply liquid teflon for the ultimate finish.

 

We also service skis for dry ski slope use. We use a slightly different process and use a special wax for dry ski slope wax. If you would like your skis serviced for dry ski slope use please inform us when you drop them off.
