Stone Grinding for the Gatineau Loppet

This week, I will grind skis on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Each day this week you can drop off your skis at GNS in Wakefield or at Eurosports in Chelsea or Eurosports in Ottawa. If requested, skis that I receive each day will be ground and ready for pick up the next day.

On Friday, if you drop off your skis at the Eurosports booth in the gymnasium at Mont Bleu High School by 8PM at the latest, these skis will be ground, waxed and back at the Eurosports booth by 1 PM Saturday. For those people who want me to do the LF wax of the day, I will have these skis at the Eurosports booth by 7:00 AM, Sunday morning.

I will grind skis and put them in the heatbox for a cost of $60. I will charge $20 to harden the bases of the skis (highly recommended). I will apply a LF wax for an additional charge of $20. I am no longer willing to use high fluor waxes or powders.

If you would like to have your skis waxed with high fluor waxes, there are stores/club that have booths in the gym in which you can drop off your skis on Saturday afternoon.

If you are planning on having skis stone ground for the Loppet, it would be helpful if you were to send me an email so that we can make the necessary arrangements.

Stone Grinding for Winter of 2017

For the remainder of the winter, I will grind skis on a weekly basis. When you drop off skis at GNS in Wakefield or at Euro-sports in Chelsea, I will charge $60 for the grind and heatbox treatment. After skis have been stone ground, the bases of the skis need to be hardened in order to be fast. I will charge $20 to harden the bases of the skis.

For the cost of $100, we also offer the Century Base Prep that includes stone grinding, heatbox treatment, hardening of the base and wax of the day.

If you drop off skis to be stone ground at Euro-sports in Old Chelsea, write your name and phone number on your skis. Send me an email to inform me that you have dropped off your skis. State your choice of grind and send me an email money transfer as payment for the stone grinding and waxing before you pick up your skis.

As a new service, GNS in Wakefield will be selling Peltonen and OneWay skis (race skis, touring skis and skin skis). When you purchase new skis at Euro-sports or at GNS in Wakefield, you can have these skis stone ground, heatbox treatment and bases hardened for a cost of $40. You will pay GNS for this service.

Skis that I have received by Tuesday will be ground, waxed and ready to go in Wakefield by 5 pm Thursday. The skis that I picked up at Euro-sports will be back at the store in Chelsea by noon time on Friday.
