Three Common Ski and Snowboard Repairs

Skis and snowboards need regular maintenance to perform their best. Knowing the most common types of repairs can help you note damage to your equipment and take action when attention is needed.

  1. Dry Base: The base of your skis or snowboard needs to be waxed regularly to reduce friction and protect the material from damage. A dry base will appear lighter than its original color and usually feels "fuzzy" or "filmy" to the touch.
  2. Base and Side Damage: Damage, such as cracks, chips, or gouges, typically occurs on the bottom of skis and snowboards. However, it's important to check the edges of your skis or snowboard as well for nicks and scrapes.
  3. Damaged Bindings and Buckles: If your boot bindings or buckles aren't in good shape, they won't hold your boots securely in place. Check your bindings and buckles before you take to the slopes and schedule repairs if they're visibly damaged or feel looser than you expect.

The following list includes some of the repair work we offer:

  • Ski and snowboard tuning services
  • Repair or restructure the base
  • Tune and wax cross country skis
  • Fix and repair snowshoes, bikes, and boot fittings

The Importance of Well-Fitted Ski Boots

Your ski boots are one of the most important components of your ski equipment and an integral part of your ski experience. In fact, surveys have shown that poorly-fitted ski boots are the number one reason that casual skiers never take their love of the sport to the next level. Call Ski & Sport of Westport at (203) 966-1671 to schedule "Superfeet" ski boot fitting and customization services today.

  • Poorly-fitted ski boots are also uncomfortable. If your ski boots are not fitted properly, you will feel discomfort long before your day on the slopes is done and may have to cut your ski excursion short.
  • A pair of ski boots that do not fit properly can be a safety hazard. When your feet are not stabilized correctly, you are much more likely to suffer a fall, fracture, or sprain.
  • Ski boots can drastically affect your skiing ability. Even if you are a good skier, poorly-fitted boots mean you will not perform at your best because you will not have full and accurate control over your skis.
