Grind schedule for October

Thu, Oct  15, 2009 - By Mark Waechter

You've been training this summer and fall to get the most from your skiing, so make sure your skis aren't a limiter.

Prepare all of your skis to run their best with a fresh grind and hotbox service.   At Nordic Ultratune, a grind batch starts every Thursday and those skis are ready for shipping on the following Monday -- just 4 days later.   Return shipping is FedEx Express Saver, which is 3rd day delivery.   So, skis that are shipped out on Monday will arrive back to you on Thursday.


Grinding skis at Ultratune

Here's the upcoming service schedule at Nordic Ultratune.   Use these dates to make sure you get your skis ready before your most important races.

  • Skis in by Oct 15th will ship out on Oct 19th and arrive by the the 22nd.
  • Skis in by Oct 22nd will ship out on Oct 26th and arrive by the the 29th.
  • Skis in by Oct 29th will ship out on Nov 2nd and arrive by Nov 5th.
  • Skis in by Nov 5th will ship out on Nov 9th and arrive by Nov 12th.
  • Skis in by Nov 12th will ship out on Nov 16th and arrive by the 19th.

You can see that there are still five service batches scheduled before the big Thanksgiving week training camps (and races...).    There is still plenty of time to get a fast grind on your skis before the season kicks off!     But don't delay... boards are a joy to ski on, and they're a real advantage.
