Ski & Snowboard Tuning

The ORC offers ski tuning services for both the WSU and local community. If you're looking to get your skis in tip-top shape for the season or if you sent it a little too hard and need repairs, come and pay us a visit. The only thing we can't help you with is mounting or adjusting your bindings. Take a look at some of our services below. If something you want done isn't on this list, give us a call and we'd be happy to help you assess what needs to be done to get you on the slopes.

The Palouse Ridge Winter Park provides the perfect place to cross country ski! You’ll enjoy gliding through the rolling hills of this convenient on-campus location. The facilitators will instruct you on the basic techniques of cross country skiing before heading out, so if you’ve haven’t tried it before, and want to, this is a perfect opportunity. Trip rating is level 1, so no experience necessary! This program is free; however, you will need to provide your own cross country ski equipment. If you need gear, just rent from the Outdoor Rental Center!
