6 Point Checklist To Make Sure Your Skis Are Tuned Up & Ready To Go

By

Useful little reminder from the tuning experts at SIDECUT about inspecting your skis to make sure they’re looking mint before you kickoff the season. Depending on your home resort, you’re probably going to be on your rock skis for another month so you have time to address this list and iron out any details in your quiver.  For more info about SIDECUT’s products GO HERE:

Bases: check the flatness of the base with the true bar and inspect the condition (are there big scratches and is your base grind visible throughout the whole ski), if there’s any major imperfections you’ll need to fix them.
Edges: Are they sharp? are they smooth? is there edge missing? is the edge separating from the base? if there is de-lamination occurring causing the ski to not perform as well as it could?
Sidewall: Is it smooth? are there gashes/holes? is there too much sidewall near the edge?
Top sheet: are there gashes that could be smoothed out? is the top sheet cracking?
Plate: are the screws holding the plate onto the ski tight or loose? is there movement between the plate and the ski? are the plates centered on the ski?
Bindings: Are the bindings positioned properly on the ski? are the binding screws tight? are the DIN settings correct? are there any cracks visible on the bindings? This only takes are couple of minutes but it’s very important to assess so you can take the necessary steps to fix or replace anything before you get out on the mountain again.
