There are two main factors that influence ski performance:
- Edges – Good sharp edges provide grip affecting the turning response and feel of the skis.
- Base – Flat waxed bases glide across the snow more effectively and ease turning.
Our technician is Salomon qualified and his sole job is to maintain and service the skis ensuring that each week they are given to guests in pristine condition, freshly waxed and with sharpened edges.
