Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 40,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

If you want the ultimate in gearhead geekiness go along to see Tony at edge2win for a race ski tuning session....

I had a full day training session this week and he really went into all the little details that can make the difference when racing, or, trying to hold an edge on an icy piste.

We first of all checked out all my tools to make sure they were up to scratch and he even tested my iron to make sure it was at the right temperature, not trusting the dial on the iron. Tony works for an F1 team and when you bring the attention to detail that a world class motor racing team has to tuning skis you get an appreciation for what sharp well prepared skis can do for your skiing. If you really want to understand the nuts and bolts of tuning and learn how to tune your skis to get the absolute best edges, waxing and base prep he definitely knows his stuff...

skimottaret, Please take care then if carring them over your shoulder, have seen a really nasty facial wound cause by WC techs and their handy work by on a coach carring several pairs down a hill, lets say he used two sets of cuttlery that evening to take advantage of multiple entry points for the evening buffett.

Colin B, Laughing after a few pairs, I find the steam stops coming out of the little holes. Funny, that. Puzzled

could be why I never win any races.

Freddie Paellahead, Woops. Travel iron I first tried was just the opposite, it hardly melted the wax.

Freddie Paellahead, you need the £5 ASDA iron (non travel) with a temp dial. Don't think it's calibrated though - I use the 'smoke test'.

Wow!! Those skis are trashed!!
Depending on how bad the lift is in other areas you could ask a ski tech to re-patch the area - however the ski will need to be checked firstly for distortion.
Personally I would cut the ski in half and have a look on the inside and the manufacturer lay up depending on what spec of ski it is - but then I am a geek.... Blush
