    Interested in having your skis (both waxable and wax less, yes they also need wax) waxed, cleaned or prepared for summer storage, this service may be for you.

    If your interested in this service contact me at the email address below:

    Fee schedule:
 5.00$  clean of last years wax/klister
10.00$ I will hot scrape** after scraping of your storage wax
 5.00$ glide wax your skis with your wax 
 8.00$ glide wax your skis with my wax
    12.00$ prepare skis for summer storage

    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 in a liquid form or very soft. This process will clean the bases effectively.”

  18. These skis are no longer available, but if anyone else has others available, please post here.

    Hi Harold

    We spoke at the trailhead today. If these skiis are still available, they would likely be quite good for my daughter. Can you find out if the Dysarts still have them? Thanks!

    I am looking for skis, boots and poles for a 7 and 10 year old (sizes 2-3 and 4-5 gym shoe. I’m not sure how that translates into ski boot.)

    Thank you.

    Hi Harold
    How are things? Haven’t seen you for quite some time. I have a friend who may be interested in the skis. What’s the price? Can
