There is nothing “basic” about our basic tune.
- Flatten and smooth with belt
- We use a Wintersteiger wet belt sander to flatten and remove blemishes from the base of the ski, using a succession of grits as necessary.
- Stone Grind flat
- We use a Wintersteiger stone grinding machine to make the base of the ski flat to factory specification.
- Stone Grind Pattern
- We use a Wintersteiger electronically controlled stone grinder to pattern the ptex base of the ski to break surface tension with the snow to provide a faster, more consistent glide. We program our machine for optimal performance in typical north east snow conditions.
- Dimension Edge
- We shape base and side edge of the ski to factory specified or custom bevels using appropriate tools for the ski and desired edge.
- Ceramic Edge sharpen and polish
- We use a computer controlled Wintersteiger machine which polishes both the base and side edges to bring the metal to a fine point, while also removing burs, tool, and grind marks from the edge. This results in a sharper, smoother, longer lasting edge on your skis.
- Hot wax with iron
- Results in better wax penetration and retention.
- All these steps are included in our basic tune.
