The bases on my skis...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

  So as you may know, Alta is not getting hardly any snow at all and I have been skiing plenty. The bases on my skis have scratches and rut things but I am pretty sure only one gouge actually penetrates the clear and goes into the ski. I actually got it the first day and I haven't gotten it fixed yet. It isn't a long scratch it is like where my ski came right down on top of a rock. I am saving for new skis and will need to sell these for the money for new ones. Disappointing because I got a base grind and wax right before the season. What should I do to get my bases just at least so I can sell the skis and how much will it probably cost?? I know I have one coreshot but there may be others that went all the way through.

 

 

 Thank you

It's about a straight forward 30 minute job with a soldering iron, metal grip, repair ribbon and base repair tools. Ideally, a SkiVisions Base Flattening and Structuring tool:

Yikes, Alpinord, video is too fast to read, let alone comprehend.  Wanted to learn something, but can't READ and WATCH at the same time, especially given how fast the words were going by.  

 

I, too, have some dings I'm not happy with.

The pause button is a wonderful tool.
