The expert ski and snowboard technicians at Santa Fe Mountain Sports manicure boards and skis with slick coats of wax and precision adjustments. The hot wax treatment buffers board bottoms and removes the remnants of flags captured from rival snow forts before heating up the surface to expand its pores. Technicians then apply a thin coat of melted wax that quickly cools to leave rides ready to carve up the most treacherous of black diamonds.
During the full tune-up, precision tools grind the platform’s bottom surface to remove scratches and irregularities. After sharpening edges, technicians douse skis or boards in a fresh coat of wax to ensure that they can turn on a dime or be lit as candles during escapes from pitch-black yeti caves.
