Alpine Accessories Store Information
In-Store Service DepartmentAlpine 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 TuningAlpine Accessories offers 3 levels of tuning, a type 1 (novice), type 2 (intermediate) and type 3 (advanced to expert). 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?
Ski Binding Installation and TestingOur 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 FittingOur 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're 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 3 levels of custom insoles from Comformable. Our custom insoles start at $50.00 and go to $150.00.
