Get Your Grind On: Nordic Ski Drop Off At Contender Bicycles!

Few things feel better than starting the ski season on refreshed bases and a stone grind, and few know the ins and outs of waxing skis like Tim Metos. This year we’ve partnered up with Metos as a ski dropoff and pickup point. Drop off your skis at either our Park City or Salt Lake City locations, and pick them up there when they’re ready. How easy is that? His expertise ensures the high-quality tuneup your skis need for a long skiing season.

Nordic stone grind full refinish includes base flattening, P-tex repair, base structure, and polish plus low-temperature hotbox wax saturation and single coat base hardening wax for $70.

Stock Structures:

Uni(-) – Universal wide range medium cold structure – #1 choice all around structure
HM-120 – Universal medium/warm  wide range – pair with Uni(-) or U3 for 2 ski quiver
U-3 – Universal shallow cold to medium cold plus fine new snow at warmer temps

Skis dropped by Monday will be serviced that week.  If you miss the Monday drop-off your skis will not be completed until the next batch runs.  There is a narrow time window on Tuesday mornings where you can drive your skis directly to Tim’s workshop but you will need to make arrangements with Tim before showing up.

For latest updates on weekly schedules visit this Facebook page:

Tim will drop off all skis at Contender Bicycles Salt Lake City. Park City-bound skis will arrive in the Park City store the next morning. Tim will bill you directly via email using PayPal.  You do not need a PayPal account to render payment, but you will need to provide a legible email address when you fill out your work ticket.  You will receive a text message that informs you when skis are returned to Contender and also alerts you to expect a billing email.
