Nordic Ski Service

When we began Nordic Stone Grinding in 1993, we were one of the first shops in country to embrace this process. Modestly stated, we have extensive experience servicing Nordic Racing skis. In the decade or so since then, we have developed and tested hundreds of base structures and have composed a catalog of finishes for all snow conditions. We have expansive knowledge of waxing and hand base preparation techniques necessary to make your skis faster.

We use a Wintersteiger Sigma RS (Racing Service) stone grinder. Nordic skis benefit from computerized control of grinding parameters enabling complex structures. Pneumatic pressure controls allow extremely low grinding pressures for more gentile, precise material removal. Feed forks deliver perfectly straight ski feeds over the stone resulting in a perfectly straight structure imprint on the ski.

When should you Stone Grind?

Our experience is that a large majority of skis benefit from this process, but a number of factors are relevant. A short list of considerations would include the following:

Grind when your skis . . .

Are consistently slow. Won't hold wax. Are damaged from hitting rocks or gravel. Are sealed from Fluoro wax application. Have worn out structure from extensive use. Need a structure pattern for a different snow condition.

Don't grind if your skis . . .

Are consistently fast and well maintained. Are needed within within a few days for a "big event". Have a bad flex or poor fit (save your money for new skis!) Have low quality bases.
