Ski and board service

Your skis will be prepared in 5 high-precision steps by MONTANA

1. Base repairs

We recommend the automatic base resolers P-TEXT MASTER or MRS. Both units enable a positive resoling of the base damage and offer high capacities for both skis and snowboards.
For manual repairs, the MONTY EXTRUDER is the ideal choice.

2. Stone grinding of bases

Next, the base surface and edges are leveled in order to create the basis for an optimal edge angle. Subsequently, the base is structured so that it glides optimally according to the snow conditions.

With the MONTANA structure system, a wide range of structures can be created: from simple linear structures through to complex, computer-controlled Vario structures for racing ski preparation in the
World Cup series. The MONTANA stone grinding system stands out with its absolutely fiber-free
grinding of the base.

3. Edge grinding

The side edges are precisely ground over the entire length at a precisely defined angle (87°, 88° or 89°).

The specially developed ceramic belts are run over the unique ceramic slide plate at a precisely defined angle – the result for the side edges:

  • an exact angle from the ski tip to tail
  • Exceptional surface
  • Long sharpness retention
  • Material-friendly grinding
  • Highly economical

4. Side edge tuning

With the unique MONTANA High-Tech Tuning (HTT) system, the steel edges on the base side are
tuned in a lightly hanging form at an angle of approx. 0.5°- 0.8° and finely polished. The ridge
which is created during the grinding of the side edges is thereby removed.

The specially developed tuning stones are set at a precisely defined angle with the dressing tool –
the result for the edges:

  • an exact angle from the ski tip to tail
  • Highly polished edges
  • Long sharpness retention
  • Material-friendly grinding
  • Highly economical

In the unique RADIAL TUNING process, the edges are hung at approx. 0.5° in the bindings area
and 0.8° at the tip/tail areas – without affecting the already optimally prepared base. The highly
polished edges also further improve the gliding characteristics.

5. Waxing and polishing

Several MONTANA robots have an integrated waxing and polishing unit. Further processing
is therefore not necessary and the customer receives a ski which is ready for the slopes.
More MONTANA technological innovations are available for manual waxing and polishing.
