ECOS Workshop – how to service skis
If the edges of your skis are rounded, if they are rusted, or if the sole is dry-greyish,possibly with holes, then it is time to refurbish them!
- Why serve your skis?
- Remember that there is no fun on the slopes with ruined skis. You can do this by yourself with some adapted tools. This will save you money (ca. 60.- for a full repair in the shop). Not only is it cheaper to do it by yourself, but you can do it more frequently (worth to do it after 1-2 days on icy snow) and it prolongs the life-time of your skis. Indeed, on the contrary of the machinemade refurbishment, the hand-made refurbishment does not remove material of the sole and does not (less) reduce the thickness of the edges. But if your skis are very badly damaged, you cannot avoid a machine refurbishment. A good approach is to do it once a year, and doing frequently the hand-made refurbishment during the ski season.
