Pricing

Ideally you will know enough about your board or skis to know exactly what you want in terms of base/edge angles, waxing, structure.  Don’t worry if you’re not sure, we can look at the kit and advise.

  5. Flatten convex/concave bases, structure, edge and base & hot wax: £60

Discounts are available for Aberdeen Snowsports Club members – 10% off on presentation of membership card.

Students get an extra 10% discount – that’s a whopping 20% off the prices above – if they can find their abdnsnow uni club cards.

Returning Customers get a 10% discount because kit that has been fettled by me once is much easier to service the second time.

We have a range of waxes but we only stock hydrocarbon waxes – Dominator Zoom base renew (purple) & universal (lime) -10 to zero degrees C ; Racewax Indoor Snow (black with graphite); Holmenkol Alphamix (warm snow) & Betamix (cold snow). If you want to use fluorocarbon wax or additives you’ll have to bring them in as they’re too expensive to buy on spec.

P-tex repairs are performed with a base doc gas iron not a candle for extra control.

Convex base flattening & cutting structure are done with the SkiVisions structure tool.

Concave base flattening (for “railed bases”) is carried out with the SkiVisions file base planer – see this post.
