The servicing offered by the Skiers Lounge is of the highest quality helping us to previously win awards for the care, attention and knowledge we put into every service we undertake, and now you can take the first steps to become a competent ski and snowboard technician, following the very same training that anyone who has worked with us has currently and in the past.

Our training courses have been running for almost 10 years, and we have helped private technicians understand their equipment better and how to service it, through to seasonnaires who have ended up scattered around the world – some as far away as New Zealand and North America, and indeed some have never returned to the UK!

The course is run in very small groups normally of 4-6 people to allow you to get the best from your time in our workshop and for us to answer any questions you have during the session.

Our Group Ski & Snowboard Technician Training Course

Those attending our full 1 day course will receive a certificate of attendance to add to your resume if you are seeking work in the industry at home or abroad.

Morning Session – 10am to 1pm

An introduction to the role of a ski and snowboard technician. We go through the construction of skis and snowboards, our goals as technicians, and the tools required to work safely and productively. We walk through the 3 stages of servicing – Bases, Edges, Waxing.

Your trainer will then show you the full step by step process of servicing a ski or snowboard by hand.

Afternoon Session – 1:30pm – 5pm

You will then have the opportunity to service a training ski with supervision to put into practive what you have seen before the break, and to ask any questions.

If you have brought your own skis or snowboard along we can offer advice on how to service these, and you can have a go at servicing your own equipment too.
