Types of Nordic Ski Services Offered

Our Winthrop nordic ski service shop is a full-service shop, equipped to handle all of your ski maintenance and customization needs. Some of our most popular services include:

Waxing

Waxing is the most basic, and most essential, service you can have done to your skis. Well waxed skis will help you glide faster and easier, and they’ll also help to keep your skis in better condition by repelling water. 

Here in the Methow Valley, the weather and snow conditions can vary widely. From warm, wet, spring skiing conditions to cold, dry, powder conditions, it’s no wonder that skiers often find themselves in a waxing conundrum. Our team of expert wax techs can help you to determine the best wax for your specific needs, and we can even do it for you if you’d like. 

Stone Grinding

Stone grinding is the best way to maintain the base of your classic skis. By removing a minimal amount of base material, we can ensure that your skis are perfectly flat and that the groove in the center is the perfect depth. We also have specific patterns that can help solve your unique problem. This will allow you to glide faster and easier, and it will also make your skis more enjoyable to ski on. 

Ski Picking

When it comes to skiing in the Methow Valley, one of the most valuable services you can have done to your skis is having a professional pick your skis. Our team of expert ski techs knows the Winthrop Nordic skiing trail system like the back of their hand. We know the snow conditions, and we know the best places to ski. So, the next time you head out for a ski, stop by and see us. We’ll pick your skis and make sure that you have the best day possible out on the trails.
