Service Glossary

Hot Wax

A treatment using an infrared wax machine that applies a layer of wax to the base of skis or snowboards. This wax is then buffed and polished, enhancing glide and protecting the base from environmental damage.

Friction Wax

A quick waxing method that applies wax through friction, which heats and melts the wax onto the ski or snowboard base. This method is fast and effective for immediate slope readiness, followed by a buff and polish for a smooth finish.

Base Grind

A process that involves grinding the base of the ski or snowboard to smooth out any imperfections and flatten the base, ensuring it is perfectly smooth and ready for wax application.

Base Edge Sharpen

Sharpening the edges that make contact with the snow along the base side of skis or snowboards. This is crucial for improved handling and grip on icy surfaces.

Side Edge Sharpen

The process of sharpening the side edges of skis or snowboards, enhancing the ability to carve and turn sharply on snow.

Minor P-Tex Repair

The application of a small amount of P-Tex, a polyethylene material used to fill minor gouges and scratches on the base of skis or snowboards.

Major P-Tex/Core Shot Repair

Repairs involving significant amounts of P-Tex for deep gouges or core shots where the core of the ski or snowboard is exposed. This repair is essential for protecting the equipment from further damage and water ingress.

Binding Mount

The process of attaching bindings to a new ski. This includes measuring and setting the bindings to fit the skier’s boots, ensuring safety and performance.

Binding Re-Mount

Re-attaching bindings to skis after filling and plugging previous mounting holes. This is typically needed when adjusting the position of the bindings or switching to different skis.

Binding Calibration

Adjusting the bindings to fit the boots properly, setting the DIN (Deutsches Institut für Normung) to the correct level based on the skier's weight, height, skill level, and boot size. This ensures the bindings release safely under stress.

Epoxy Fix

A repair method using epoxy resin to fix chips, delamination, and top sheet problems on skis and snowboards, restoring the structural integrity and surface finish.
