In-Store Service Department
Alpine Accessories has a full service department offering binding installations and adjustments, ski and snowboard tuning, hot waxing, repairs, custom boot fitting and tuning lessons. Many shops send out their service work but our service department is located on-site in our backroom. This allows us to give you quick turn around, usually within 48 hours, and we believe we're able to control the quality of the work more.
Ski and Snowboard Tuning
Alpine Accessories offers 3 levels of tuning, a type 1 (cautious), type 2 (intermediate) and type 3 (aggressive). We found skis and snowboards behave better when they are tuned to the performance level of the skier and boarder, not to the performance level of the equipment. Tunings start at $39.00 and go to $59.00 depending on the work you need.
We often get asked, How often should I have my equipment tuned?
Novices should have their equipment tuned after every 7-9 days on the slopes and wax every 3-5 days.
Intermediate to advance should have their equipment tuned after every 5-7 days on the slopes and hot waxed every 3-5 days.
Advanced to experts normally tune their equipment after every 3-5 times out on the slopes.
Ski Binding Installation and Testing
Our service technicians are certified to install, adjust and test all major manufactures bindings. Whether you purchase your equipment from us or somewhere else, we can do the work. We work on alpine skis, snowboards and cross country bindings.
How often should you have your ski bindings tested? The ski binding manufactures recommend to have your bindings tested every 15 to 20 days of use or every other season. Remember to bring your boots because they are required to test your bindings.
Ski Boot Custom Fitting
Our experienced boot fitters are trained to do many boot fitting needs including custom insoles. If you have uncomfortable boots, we can usually help you. Many times we are asked, "Do I need custom insoles?" Many boots have good insoles from the factory, so not everyone may need a custom insole. But a custom insole can help with comfort and performance because it is formed and fitted to your foot! Because novices have different needs than experts, we offer different levels of custom insoles to orthodics.
For more info, please call us at 847-854-4754.
If it is new boots you need, you will get custom fitted with our 5 step process to find the right boot for you and for as long as you own your boots.
