Wow, great site. I didn't even know half the stuff on there and I've been skiing for years. Well, I guess this is a good time to start doing what I should. Thanks for the site.

Hmmm, luckily I still am renting my equipment.

How much does it cost to maintain your ski equipment? After my next ski holiday I was considering buying my own but would obviously like to know all costs involved.

That is a really good point and that is why I rent either for the day or for the season becasue then I do not have to take care of the skis and they are always in good shape.

Here is another good website for tuning instruction. There is a pdf file you can download and print. I printed it out and keep a copy around just in case I need some info. They also sell wax and tuning equipment. Very good stuff too.

With a little tlc your ski's will ski noticeably better. Even just regular waxing helps.
