Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

For the next four days, we'll go over what types of things you can do to maximize the performance of your boards on the slopes. Check back tomorrow to learn how to deburr and sharpen your edges.

While there are several places in town that can tune your skis or snowboard, there is a lot of maintenance work you can do at home. Taking more control over the performance of your skis can lead to better results on the slopes.

I was able to persuade Matt Hupperts of Edgeworks to show us what types of tuning work can be done at home: mounting your skis, doing P-Tex repair, sharpening and maintaining your edges, and waxing your skis. Watch and learn above.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
