Our Services

Nordic Basic Glide Wax - $20

All Nordic skis can benefit from a good glide wax application.  Even “wax-less” skis!  Glide waxing keeps your skis fun and efficient. 

  • Clean ski glide zones with glide-specific base cleaner.
  • Apply hot or liquid wax that is temperature/snow condition appropriate.
  • Allow wax to cool/dry.  Scrape and/or brush to finish.

Nordic Full Base Prep - $40

For new or freshly stone ground skis. This service is free with top of the line skis like Atomic Redster Carbon 9 series, Fischer SpeedMax, or Salomon S/LAB – when said skis are purchased from Skihut! 

  • Clean glide zones with glide-specific base cleaner.
  • Hot box skis with a soft base prep wax for 90 minutes.
  • Base hardening with a blue temperature wax.
  • Finish with scrape and brush.

Nordic Stone Grind - $75 -- Skin Skis - $85

Are your skis not holding wax?  Are they slower than you would like?  Are the bases full of small scratches?  A stone-grind will remedy most of these situations! Stone grinds remove a layer of base material and leave a “structured” base behind.  Just like new!

  • We have a basic 3-grind menu:
  • Cold
  • Universal
  • Warm
  • Service includes base prep outlined above.

Nordic Hot Box - $20

The hot box keeps the wax in a constant molten state.  This allows the wax to more thoroughly penetrate the ski base micro-structure, leaving behind a layer of wax that will help further wax applications adhere to the base.  Think of it as a “primer” layer.

  • Clean glide zones with glide-specific base cleaner
  • Apply easy-penetrating base prep wax
  • Basic 90 Minute hot box
  • Finish with scrape and brush

Nordic Race Specific Wax - Glide wax only - $90 -- Grip Wax - $50

Have a big race coming up?  Need to win that bet with your ski pal? Let us wax your skis.  No need for you to buy all the fancy waxes. We have them and we’ll put them on for you!

  • Price includes all necessary glide wax layers including top coats and possible hand-structuring.
  • We will only apply what is applicable for the specific race time as indicated by the weather forecast and known snow conditions.
  • Grip-waxing away from the race venue is a gamble.  We’ll do our best.  But it will be an educated guess at best.
  • We may insist upon a stone grind prior to race waxing your skis, if we feel your ski bases require it.  All the wax in the world won’t help a ski with poor structure!  Yes.  You can put a fresh grind on skis the same week as a race.  In fact – some recent findings point towards a freshly ground ski being fastest immediately after the new grind is applied!

  • We will install your new bindings and make sure that you know how to use them.
