Time to Wax and Tune your Skis!

The Upper Peninsula has over a dozen downhill skiing areas with vertical drops over 900 feet and ski runs as long as 8,300 feet. Combine a typical season lasting from Thanksgiving to April with up to 300 inches of lake effect snow each year and you get some pretty dang good skiing here in the U.P. along the shores of Lake Superior.

Whether you’re skiing the runs at Marquette Mountain, hitting the rails and other features of Mont Ripley or ripping it up at Mt Bohemia, you would be hard pressed to find better snow or a better time anywhere in the Midwest. There’s nothing better than hitting the hill with a freshly tuned and waxed ski or snowboard! For years racers have been dropping off skis for Parker and Arni to prep… and these guys don’t mess around! Whether you’re looking to improve your time, or just want your skis to run a little faster we are here to help. Down Wind Sports is proud to have certified technicians on hand at both of our shops, and we guarantee 100% satisfaction.

We offer free estimates on all service and no repairs will be made without approval. We make every attempt to service your equipment in a timely manner with the average turn around time being ~2 days. Start this season off with a fresh tune! You may be surprised how a proper tune can help take your confidence and skiing to the next level.
