Our staff will place the furniture anywhere inside or outside of your home and offer suggestions on use of space.  All care and maintenance requirements will be discussed at the time of purchase and again on site with our delivery person. Our service also covers you for any problems that might arise during the manufacturer's warranty period for that furniture. We also offer furniture relocation services, if you need to move old furniture out of the way to make room for the new.

Infrared Base Waxing
We no longer drip melted wax on the bottom of downhill or cross country skis. That does not work on today's high performance base materials. Premium ski waxing requires the use of a Thermo-controlled infrared waxing system which does not make direct contact with the ski. We have the newest Montana Sport Infrared technology in our shop which allows us to apply condition specific wax. The wax liquifies slowly and is absorbed deeply into the base of the ski. This application is not only more durable but is also stays on longer and improves the gliding properties of your skis.


Ceramic Edge Sharpening
The steel edges on today's skis are impossible to sharpen properly by hand or with the use of belt sanders. Ski edges today are much harder, more durable, and require the use of a precision Ceramic Edge Grinding machine. Our Montana 3-D Finish grinder allows us to reset the base and side angles of the steel edge accurately within half-degree increments. We can also micro-polish the edge to a customer's preference based on their skiing style.


Basic Belt Grind Tune-Up
Our economy level tune-up is done with our basic belt grinder which does a good job of cleaning up the bases and sharpening the bottom side of the steel edge. It will remove dirt and imperfections from the base material and clean the rust off the edges. Our belt grind tune-ups are a great value and also include the infrared base waxing application so your skis will glide better.
Premium Stone Grind Tune-Up
If you want your skis to glide and turn the way they did when new, our Premium Stone Grind Tune-Up is the best service we can offer. Our Montana Stone Grinder allows us to perfectly flatten the bottom of the ski which is the only way to set the edge angles properly. Our factory trained technicians can adjust the speed and pressures on the auto feed system to precisely cut the structures in the ski base for optimum glide. We offer a variety of textures on the ski base for different snow conditions and customer preference. Our Stone Grind Service also includes edge angles set to your preference along with the finest infrared wax application available on the market. When you purchase a Stone Grind Tune-Up from Chalet, your skis are better than new on the bottom of the ski.




Custom Ski Boot Fitting

Man helping with boot fitting

Your boot is your most important piece of equipment. Chalet offers a wide range of boot fitting services for beginner skiers to the most advanced of skiers.  We can customize almost any ski boot to fit your foot. Our trained staff of boot fitters have years of experience to help you select the correct model and size so you receive the best possible fit.

Footbeds
We offer a wide range of footbed options, including custom molded insoles  and trim-to-fit insoles from Sidas and Masterfit Inc. Insoles help to secure your foot in its most neutral position, enhancing performance and adding comfort. Our trained staff can make recommendations on which model may best suit your needs.

Alignment
Once the foot has been stabilized within the boot we are able to check a skiers stance alignment to offer further suggestions on how to optimize the boot performance. This ensures that your own biomechanics are working correctly with your gear.

Modifications
Here at Chalet we are able to stretch and grind shells to accommodate both normal and abnormal foot features. Liner modifications may also be necessary to preserve the fit of an older boot or to get that new boot to fit just right.  We offer an unconditional fit Guarantee on any new ski boot we sell and we encourage every customer to return to our store for periodic adjustments.

Ski Binding Installation

Man testing bindingA ski binding is an important link between your ski boots and your skis. It affects your safety on the hill and the overall performance of your ski equipment. At Chalet, we take this matter very seriously and  follow the most current ASTM standards and requirements of our binding manufacturers. Our shop technicians have extensive training and are fully certified by every manufacturer. We also take the time to fully function check EVERY binding that we install to make sure it’s performing correctly. We have over 45 years of experience servicing ski equipment and we’ve earned the trust of many skiers and their families.


Ski Testing

Every year brings new changes to the ski industry; advancements in technology, construction, geometries, and flex; the only way to know how the new gear feels on snow is to actually ski the skis. This is why we send our buyers and our employees to ski demos throughout the season to test the new models for next year. Purchasing a ski involves a degree of trust in your salesperson, and you can trust that our staff is experienced and knowledgeable about the gear we are recommending for you.
