We are back for the 2023-24 ski season. Due to circumstances beyond our control we have made the decision to discontinue bike sales and service. A combination of covid induced major supply chain issues, bike manufacturers limits on product distribution, and a shortage of experienced bike technicians have forced us to make this change. We will no longer accept bikes for service effective September 3rd. Anyone with a new bike purchase 30 day tune will have until October 15th. Please call with any additional concerns or questions.

Custom Shell Molding- High Adventure has a custom-built heat control system for our boot ovens to precisely control the oven temperature and optimize fit for all boot brands.  $75

Shell Stretch or Grind- This service expands or stretches the boot shell in a specific area to better conform to your foot or lower leg shape.  $25 per stretch or grind.

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.
