Learn to tune and wax from an expert ski tuner. Let World-Class skier Thomas Gardtman share a wealth of experience in high performance ski tuning with you. Thomas has taught professional skiers and racers his tuning and waxing techniques and secrets for many decades in both North America and Europe.


You will learn the fine art of hand filing and all about how to properly tune both base and side edges of your skis for the best possible grip and turning performance for different types of snow and skiing. You will also learn how to hand structure and prepare the ski bases for waxing and how to wax them for the best possible glide and ease of turning for different temperatures, snow conditions, and skiing. You will learn about different types of wax and how to select the best wax and/or wax mix for your skiing purpose and conditions. During the workshop, you will be introduced to specialized edge tuning, base preparation and waxing tools, and the correct use of these tools, which will generate professional results.

The Advanced Ski Tuning & Waxing Workshop is a hands-on learning experience and a vast amount of information will be shared. Accordingly, the workshop is made up of two sessions, each lasting about three hours. Session I will primarily cover edge and base tuning, with Session II covering mainly base preparation and waxing. Both sessions work together to affect the final tuning and waxing results. There will be a break between sessions, with snacks and drinks provided. The cost for this special workshop is $110.

Our next Workshop is scheduled for Saturday, November 29, 2014, starting at 11:00 am in Truckee, California. Pre-registration is required.
