I dropped my skis off for a wax & sharpen for approx. $40. I picked them up the next morning. Prompt friendly service. My friends who spend 4 weeks in Vail recommended this place. My skis were good all week with the current conditions.

I usually avoid posting negative reviews figuring that maybe it was simply a bad day, or I got service from the "one bad egg" but in this case I have to say that the entire experience was eye widening in its depth of badness. I...More
