SKI AND SNOWBOARD SERVICING AND REPAIRS GUIDE


Maybe you've just got back from your new skis' or snowboard's first trip to the slopes. Or maybe it's time to bring your prized possessions back out of storage for another season of shredding. Either way, regularly servicing your equipment is the only way to keep it performing at its very best, and we've got options to suit your every need. And if it's taken a knock and needs restoring to its former glory? We'll have it looking - and riding - as good as new.

Our Stores

You can drop your equipment off at any of our stores for servicing or repairs, but we only have on-site workshops at six locations, meaning turnaround times at these stores could be quicker. These are:

 

  • Bristol
  • Chertsey
  • Chill Factore (Manchester)
  • Dundrum
  • Hemel Hempstead
  • Port Solent

Servicing Options

Please note that if there is a large amount of damage or special work required we reserve the right to adjust these prices accordingly.

Repairs

For buckles and spare parts, visit us in-store so our experts can assess your boots and quote you for availability and price.

 

For extensive repairs or topsheet damage, bring your equipment to store and we will assess the damage and quote you a guide price.

Our Recommended Seasonal Service Programme

Early Season: September/October/November

The best time of the year: the start of the ski season. Now's the time to get your skis or board out from storage and get them ready for the slopes.

 

If the edges of your skis or board are dull or even rusty, and the base is white or dry, then we recommend a Full Service to repair any damage, structure your equipment for optimum glide and sharpen and polish those edges. Make sure to bring your boots, too, so we can check your bindings.

 

If there's no damage to your equipment, we'd recommend a Basic Service to sharpen and polish the edges with a hot wax. If your equipment is still sharp and rust-free, just a hot hand wax will be enough to get it ready for the season.

Mid-Season: December/January/February

You're back from your first trip of the season - but it won't be the last. We recommend at least getting your skis or board re-waxed to replenish the moisture, but you should also consider a Basic Service to smooth out any nicks and restore your equipment's grip. If your equipment has suffered any damage, a Full Service is the best option to fully restore it.

End of Season: March/April

After the last snow of the season has melted, it's time to prepare your skis or board for the summer with a storage wax. This is a thick layer of wax which locks moisture into the base and reduces the risk of oxidisation or rust, and we think it's the best thing you can do for your pride and joy. You may want to combine the storage wax with a full service, so that at the start of the season you just need to have your skis or board scraped and polished in store, or you can wait until the start of the season so they're freshly serviced ready for the slopes.

While You Wait Servicing

Some of our stores are able to offer 'while you wait' servicing. Turnaround times will vary and a surcharge may apply, so please enquire with the store to confirm availability.
