Trail Sports offers repairs to most problems with skis, bindings, and poles. We are equipped to repair even major gouges in your ski base!
Trail Sports offers 3 different types of glide waxing service ("hot waxing"), and also grip zone service for classical skis:
Hot boxing allows skis to absorb a greater amount of wax than standard ironing methods by holding the skis at computer controlled temperatures for a period of time. It has been stated that hot boxing for a few hours is the equivalent of 30 coats of wax applied with an iron.
As stone grinding leaves skis with no wax in the base, all ground skis can benefit from this process.
Hot Box - One layer of soft, penetrating, hot box specific wax, scraped and brushed plus one layer of blue wax to cap the wax, scraped and brushed. $60.00
$50.00 per pair grind only. Stone grind and hot box $80.00 per pair.
Since 1995 Trail Sports has worked closely with the National cross country skiing and biathlon teams to determine the best grinds for various conditions. These grinds are offered to the general public.
Stone grinding (with proper subsequent treatment) will assure optimal glide for your skis because:
Trail Sports offers the following grinds:
Our service includes Roto-brushing (to remove micro-hairs) and application of the first coat of soft glide wax, which is left without scraping to protect the base.
If you are not sure about your skis, bring them in or give us a call. We will be happy to advise you. Deep scratches or gouges can be taken out, but at the expense of excess base removal.
