About your host

I am a skiing instructor for already 15 years (german license level 2), and i worked for the university sports department in berlin and for several austrian ski schools. I took workshops regularily also in the area of ski competition, where the ski tuning is an important topic. Yo you can learn many things from me and i probably can answer you some questions.

What we’ll do

We will meet at my place in Innsbruck. We will have a coffee, juice or beer and we eill start with the workshop. You will lern to sharpen the edges of the ski in the angle that you need, to wax the ski and polish it. You can try everything yourself. At the end you will have a perfectly prepared ski and will be able to do the process yourself the next time. The price is less than you would have…

What else you should know

When you tune the edges by hand, you can sharpen them only from the side, whereas the mashine also sharpens from the bottom. but the advantage from the hand sharpening is, that the bottom of the ski doesn't get thinner. Also the hand-waxing is more intense than the machine waxing.

What I’ll provide

Sports equipment and Creative supplies
I have all the equipment necessary for the ski tuning.

What to bring

The skis that should be tuned.

Where you'll be

The workshop will take place in the kitchen of my home, where there is enough space to tune the skis. Also there will be coffee and cold drinks :)
