Do the maintenance yourself? If you want to keep your skis or snowboard in peak condition, your gear will need to be maintained well. The base (underside of the ski/snowboard) shouldn't dry out, the edges have to stay sharp and rust-free and the bindings need to be checked every year. You can bring your skis or snowboard to our stores, but much of the work can be done yourself. This page will explain how to tune your gear in broad steps and will tell you which materials you'll need.
