  • About

    Wax: Learn everything about waxing for both Nordic and Alpine sports. Explore the differences in wax, first layer, top coats, hand brushes, roto brushes and wax temp. See what tools and gear you need to get started!

    Guests are encouraged to bring their own skis or snowboards. We will teach guests how to wax and prep their equipment for the best possible ski and snowboard experience. Mountain Sports will have some equipment on hand to practice on as well.

    Tune:  We'll show you how to sharpen your skis or snowboards, plus teach you all about edge angles, types of stones, files and the tools needed to keep your gear in top shape. Learn about different tunes for different conditions and how they make your skis perform! 

    Our tuning techs will be holding tuning demonstrations every half hour from 10:30am - 3pm, so jump in for this hands on clinic!
