The last I checked going rates for sharpening and waxing skis or snowboards were $35 to well over $50 depending on location and type of service. In this video I show you how to sharpen and wax your own snowboard and if you keep up with regular waxing could save you money over the entire season and seasons to come. Normal sharpening and waxing can be done by yourself with some basic tools.
If there are issues with your board, visible damage or something does not seem right always take your board to your local snowboard shop for service. Check all bolts and screws for tightness after servicing your board and at regular intervals.

Locally we did see some of our first natural snowflakes of the season today as a cold front pushed though the area. Today’s high was 55F and low so far is 27F and should go lower in the next few hours. Temperatures are predicted to go to low of 18F tonight and tomorrow night. Dress warm its cold outside.
If you happen to head North to any ski resort bring and extra layers temperatures are in the single digits.
