There is still time to get your race skis prepped for the American Birkie or  Masters World Cup.    Fast skis can cut a few percent from your race time, which can mean finishing minutes earlier.
Prepare all of your skis to run their best with a fresh grind and hotbox service. At Nordic Ultratune, a stone grinding 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 the Birkie or MWC2011.
  • Skis in by Feb 17th will ship out on Feb 21st and arrive to you by Feb 24th.
  • Skis in by Feb 24th will ship out on Feb 28th and arrive to you by March 3rd.
There is still  time to get a fast grind on your skis before these events!     But don’t delay… …fast boards are a joy to ski on, and they’re a real advantage.
Hey, if you’re driving to the Masters Championships at SilverStar Mtn from the south, you could stop at Nordic Ultratune on the way.   Ultratune is located in Winthrop, WA, about 4 hours south of the WMC location.
