The Technolami Mantec Ski Numericontrol 140 NC

Sixty five pairs of skis showed up, in big clumps, during the 4 days before Christmas.    Primarily they were skis needing last minute grinds before US Nationals in Rumford.        It resulted in a week of long days, but all the skis were completed on time, and are on their way.        I have a hunch that some of those skis will be on the podium next week.       Good luck to all the skiers heading to Rumford!

January Stone Grinding Schedule

Your big ski events are coming up in the coming weeks, so make sure your skis are as ready as you are.
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.
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 Dec 30th will ship out on Jan 3rd and arrive back to you by Jan 6th.
  • Skis in by Jan 6th will ship out on Jan 10th and arrive by the 13th.

There is still plenty of time to get a fast grind on your skis before the season’s big marathon races kick off!     But don’t delay… …fast boards are a joy to ski on, and they’re a real advantage.
