Winter is here again, and you’re probably stuck inside again thinking about what you should be doing to get active. If you have an old pair of skates or cross country skis that haven't seen the light of day in 35 years, then they will most likely need some attention.
We are active people - getting out on our bikes is just one way to stay active. Winter brings new opportunities to play, so let's get your equipment ready.
Skates sharp? Check
Skis hot waxed? Check
Snowboard ready to carve? Check
Last year we invested in a Sparx skate sharpener (as used by NHL pros and trainers). This machine gives an even grind every time without the long skate shack line-up. We can sharpen Figure Skates, Goalie Skates, and Hockey Skates usually in the time it takes you to wash the car or grab a cup of coffee.
We also have group discounts for 5 or 12 pairs of skates.

Downhill Ski and Snowboard waxing
We will also wax and sharpen the edges of most skis and snowboards. If you got a minor gash in the base of your ski or snowboard we can fix that too.

Even waxless cross-country skis need a good glide wax base. Whether your skis are old or new, every 40-60km of skiing will require a refresh of your glide wax. We use a buffing system that is effective and winning races. You don't have to be entering a race, but why work harder than you have to. (Or why not go further and faster on your next ski.)

How do I drop off my skates or skis?
When you make your order online, give us a call and we can organize the best time to drop by. The time it takes to sharpen your skate usually averages 10-20 minutes per pair. The time will depend on how worn the skates are and how large our workload is on that day.
Normally if you have one pair of skates, we will be done in the time it takes you to grab a coffee and come back.
