PROFESSIONAL TUNING AND BOOT FITTING

In the tuning center, GMVS provides a quality of finish that was previously only available on the World Cup level, and we therefore eliminate equipment as a variable in our athletes’ performance.  A team of expert technicians utilizes state-of-the-art machinery including a Mercury automated machine from Wintersteiger, Race NC finish machine from Wintersteiger, and a Montana Wax Future robot to create precise grinds and finishes.

Technicians also utilize custom boot-fitting tools and a semi-custom software solution for tracking service on all skis and boots.   There are designated areas for both ski prep and boot fitting.

STUDENT TUNING

In a separate space, student-athletes share a large, open tuning area with multiple benches where they can tune their own skis, collaborate with one another, and get hands-on instruction from the expert technicians.  The area is designed with large glass windows, so student-athletes can also watch the tech services department at work and truly understand what happens to their skis during initial prep and maintenance phases.
