Ski service and maintenance

Piste Rental Shop and ski service help you to find the best possible maintenance for your equipments. We provide services for alpine skis, telemark skis, cross country skis and snowboards.

Piste ski service operates the modern automatic ski service machine Wintersteiger Discovery. We are able to take care of the alpine skis of both beginners and racers, as well as cross-country skis! If special pattern grinding is needed, it must be discussed separately according to the customer's needs.

For the snowboards we do the grinding by hand. This results to an excellent base for the snowboards.
The ski service also involves priming the equipment. We use a thermal oven for priming, which means that the cream is properly absorbed into the base of the skis and gives the equipment more life and excellent glide. We recommend priming lubrication especially for new equipment!

In the Ruka Ski Inn accommodation you will find maintenance rooms for skis and snowboards that are suited for big groups as well. If you are staying in Ruka Village, we recommend using the maintenace tables located in Ruka parking hall.  

For frequentuly visiting teams we offer storage space for slalom sticks and other equipment in Vuosseli maintenance hall, address: Vuosselintie 17. Storage space is limited and it is filled according to bookings. Inquiries and bookings primarily via e-mail: trackbooking@ruka.fi
