OK, so I just bought a bunch of equipment off craigslist for myself and my daughter - our first set of equipment. I've skied for 20 years, but always off rental equipment as I never went enough or consistently but expect to do so now with my loving-it 7 year old (learned last year with about 8 or 9 days under her belt). Since I never owned, I never really had responsibility for upkeep of skis, so don't really know terminology.
My skis are in very good condition. They guy who sold them to me said his wife used them about 3 times before she switched to snowboarding. No rust, doesn't look like it has any damage from rocks or what not, edge is apparently very good (did some rub with the back of the nail test something or other) and they have storage wax on it. He said that I could just "ski-off" the wax on my first runs. But the bindings are set for smaller length boots than I have.
So do I just take this into some ski shop and have them "tune" it, or otherwise, can I just watch some you tube tutorials and extend the boot settings myself? And how about the DIN settings?
My daughter's skis are old and a tad rusty - but they are 1 season skis, right? So do I take them in to the shop and have them tuned up (waxed, grinded, edge sharpened, whatever else?), along with getting the bindings set for her boots and DIN numbers?
I assume that no servicing is needed on the boots and poles, right?
