In order to move safely on the slopes, regular maintenance of your equipment is essential. The more individual the demands on the material, the more recommended it is to carry out the ski service yourself.

Ski service at home is also attractive for families with many winter sports enthusiasts. This can save a lot of time and money in the long run!

Have you decided to take your ski service into your own hands, but are still not sure how to proceed? We have created instructions for ski service in short and informative videos and explain to you which steps are necessary and how you can carry them out.
Starting with clamping the skis, measuring the angle, sanding the edges and then waxing and polishing the base. Each step is shown in detail to make it easier for you to get started with ski service.


First, the skis are prepared so that you can work on them safely. To do this, the ski brake must be fixed, which would otherwise get in the way when waxing and grinding edges. On the other hand, the ski must be securely clamped so that it does not slip during the ski service.
Preparation also includes checking the surface. You can only carry out your ski service precisely with a flat surface.
Removing the side cheek is part of the preparation for edge sharpening. If you sand with the ES2000, this step is not absolutely necessary, but recommended, as the side edge creates dust.

Edge preparation

To ensure safety when skiing and snowboarding, you should pay attention to sharp edges. With sharp edges you have more control on the slopes, especially on icy sections. The sharper the edge, the better the grip.
There are two options when editing the edges. Either file by hand or sand with an electric edge grinder. When purchasing, you have to consider which aspects you value and also what you can work with better. In general, you get very sharp edges with both variants.

Surface preparation

In order to make the skiing experience even safer and to achieve a certain speed when skiing, you should wax the bases. Waxing makes the base water-repellent and reduces the friction between the base and snow. This improves the gliding properties of the skis and snowboards, so that you can ski on the slopes evenly and without stalling. Before waxing, you should repair any damage to the base and clean the base so that the wax can penetrate deep into the pores.
