Why do skis and boards need service?
The answer is quite simple: in order to have more fun and stay safe on the slopes. An optimal edge and base tuning gives you a smooth and secure experience on the slopes in any snow condition.
When do skis and boards need service?
The frequency of the service depends on snow conditions, terrain and your skiing abilities. However major base or edge damage need to be repaired immediately.
Gruber recommends a tune-up:
- Each winter, before the first descent
- After 4 intense days on the slopes
- At the end of the season

The 5 basic steps for ski and board tuning
Top, base and edges are cleaned to remove dirt. Then the equipment is checked for damage.
Any dings, scratches or holes are filled with coating material.
The base is pre-ground and finished by stone-grinding. This is the best way to apply the optimal structure to the base. This reduces suction and friction between the base and the snow and allows the equipment to glide better.
Depending on the performance level you expect from your equipment, edges are ground to a negative angle between 0 and 3 degrees. You will enjoy optimal handling and performance on the slopes.
The last step in tuning is the application of hot wax. It coats the base, protects against damage and improves the gliding and turning abilities of your equipment.
Our specially trained staff will adjust the fit of your shoes in no time with special soles or individual changes. Your shoes will fit completely pain free - what a great feeling!
