A huge thanks to all the ladies who came out to Banff’s Soul Ski & Bike for a ski & snowboard tuning clinic offered by Swix Sports! Over the course of an hour and a half, rep Mitch Conner demoed the step-by-step process of how to tune your favourite sliding apparatus.
He explained the different stoning tools and methods, the various degrees you can get your gear sharpened at, the Dos and Don’ts for using tuning tools safely, and little tricks of the trade that can help if the 14 girls in the room ever wanted to DIY!
The room had a nice variety of skiers and snowboarders, and the girls weren’t afraid to ask some pretty awesome and relevant questions. It was so much fun and inspiring to be in a room full of gals who want to learn how to take care of their gear. The Far North division of SheJumps is stoked on a successful Outdoor Education event and we’re also really grateful to Soul Ski & Bike for their continuing support!
