Easy Ways to Fine Tune and Upgrade Equipment

Your gear, like your body, needs a bit of a tune up before you hit the slopes. So after completing your pre-season exercise regimen and conditioning, give your equipment some love and get it tuned it up for the season.

Well tuned equipment and proper fitting boots greatly enhance your performance, mood and overall fun factor. The Dodge Ridge Tech Shop staff are experts at providing quality custom tune-ups for skiers and riders of all levels. A full tune up includes a belt and stone grind structuring which helps skis and boards glide smoothly by breaking up suction caused by water between your base and the snow; edges are sharpened to help you better carve precision turns; minor repairs made to the running surface; and finally a hand wax is applied. You will feel the difference once you’re back out on the slopes.

If you are looking to upgrade your setup, find your next skis or bindings in the Dodge Ridge Sport Shop.  See what’s trending from our Sport Shop on Pinterest, and check out some of the top rated gear for this season available in the Sport Shop and Demo Center.  Shop with confidence with our Dealer Match Pricing – no matter what the price, Dodge Ridge will match that price for current season hardgoods being sold by an authorized dealer.  Contact us for complete program details.

If it’s your kids who need new equipment, try our Junior Ski Trade-Up Program. The family that skis together, stays together, and we know how fast kids can grow (as does their need for new skis and boots). The trade-up program is an affordable way to purchase new or gently used skis and boots for kids up to age 12. Eligibility begins when you purchase any new skis, boots, or bindings from the Dodge Ridge Sport Shop. You then receive a credit (up to 40 percent the first year) for any exchanges and trade-ups made between Labor Day Weekend and the end of the season.  ((Click Here)) for more info or contact us for complete program details.

For the best boot fit, be sure to come and see our MasterFit certified boot fitter Bobby Mackey. Whether you’re a competitive skier or tend to make it out a few days a season, custom fit boots will give you better performance and greater comfort. You may not think you deserve the best, but we do, and we guarantee that the right gear will make your experience on the mountain that much more enjoyable.
