At Vere Sports, experienced instructors and technicians polish ski equipment and fine-tune footwork to ensure graceful glides across every type of terrain. Before waxing, ski refurbishers scrub grime and a summer’s worth of melted ice cream off skis. After warming to room temperature, skis then don a coat of low flour, high flour, graphite, or tungsten wax, tailored to the snow conditions skiers intend to traverse. Skis then dip back down to freezing temperatures and are brushed and polished to feel as smooth as a freshly exfoliated dolphin.
Alternatively, skiers can hone their technique by joining a class of no more than six fellow skiers of the same skill level. Instructors draw upon years of racing experience to guide students through a sequence of ski techniques before turning them loose to slice through the snow. Students can then spend an hour honing their ability to zip past fellow snow sojourners.
