HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN YOUR SKIS OR SNOWBOARD NEED A TUNE? After each day on the mountain you should thoroughly inspect your equipment for wear or damage, things to look out for include:
- Dull, rounded edges, or nicks/burrs in the metal. If your edges are worn, your equipment will continually slip out from under you while making turns. Worn edges make it particularly difficult to ride on firm or icy conditions
- Damage to the base, such as scratches or gouges. Even small scratches can impede glide and lead to additional base damage if not repaired. Deep gouges, which penetrate to the core, or run along the metal edges need to be repaired by a qualified tuning shop
- Dry bases. As you ride, the wax wears from the base due to friction and will leave it with a dry, fuzzy, gray appearance. Applying a fresh coat of wax will improve glide, and conditioning against oxidation. Base wax wears relatively quick, especially on dry snow, and should be applied after every 2 to 4 days of use
