The skis that we use for rent are actual retail skis with progressive edge contact as you need it and early rise in the tip and tail ‘Rocker’ for slower speed maneuverability. Our rental boots are retail versions as well; from Tecnica, Head and Lange.
The models that were chosen for both men and women each have a different fit so you can enjoy your time on the slopes.

Most shops hide their service shop in the basement! Edge Control is proud of its service heritage and has the shop on the main floor for quick and easy access. We use Wintersteiger ski and snowboard tuning machinery.
We have a SBI base grinder. It has both a sanding belt for material removal and a stone to true the base flat and leave a structure to enhance gliding. The structure can be changed for different snow types and temperatures.
Our Trim Disc 71 is used for sharpening and bevelling both the side and base edge. It uses a ceramic disc for accurate angles and is the same technology that factories use.
We also have ski binding installation jigs and the tools needed for mounting, servicing and repair of skis and snowboards.
We also have been providing overnight service since 1978!
