Ike’s Ski Service! November 17, 2015

Filed under: Services Offered — dougskijors @ 8:53 pm

Interested in having your skis (both waxable and less wax skis,yes they also need wax)  cleaned or prepared for the coming season,this service is for you.
When ski bases are left with out wax they start to dry out caused by oxidation*
If your interested in this service contact me at the email address below:
Fee schedule:
5.00$  clean of last years wax
10.00$ clean of last years klister
12.00$ to prepare skis for the ski season (includes a Hot Scrape**)
6.00$ glide waxed using your wax ( and brushed)
10.00$ glide waxed using my wax  (and brushed)

Note: a portion of these fees will be donated to the Tantramar Outdoor Club

For pine tarring and minor repairs , contact me using the email address below:

*Oxidation – when there is no glide wax on the ski base, the p-tex reacts with oxygen in the air to form a whitish layer. This oxidized layer will reduce the glide properties of the ski and also blocks the pores in the base so that additional glide wax will not penetrate the base
**Hot Scrape – a method for cleaning the glide zone of classic skis or the whole base on skate skis. Glide wax is applied, melted to an even layer and then scraped off while still soft. This process will clean the bases effectively.

Jackrabbit families get FOUR pair prepared for the season for the price of THREE.
