If you waxed your skis at the end of the previous season, you should remove the old wax (base and edge) and brush the base.


Conduct a visual inspection: skis or snowboards with rusty and/or bad edges as well as damaged and dry bases must definitely be serviced. Therefore, make an appointment at a qualified ski service workshop.


Ensure a safe boot release in the event of a fall, by having the binding-boot unit checked annually and the Z-value calculated and adjusted. It is advisable to have this carried out in a qualified specialist workshop – using a ski binding tester machine.


Ski boots with heavily worn soles can impair binding release. Check their condition and buy new ones or rent some if necessary; especially since material can become porous and break over time.
