When grinding skin skis, it is not necessary to remove the skins in order to grind the skis. By using 2 pieces of plastic to protect the skins, I am able to grind the front and then the back glide zones of the skis. On new skis that we sell, I prefer to install the skins before I grind the glide zones.

Recommended Grinds for Skin Skis

LW1 – A cold grind for colder temperatures.

LW2 -This grind will work well in old snow in temperatures from approximately 0’ C to -10’ C.

LW3 – Ideal for wet conditions with air temperatures around 0’C.
