    What do you think of a section on equipment care and maintenance?

    Of strong personal interest to me. How to best care for skis, wax them under different conditions, best products to use, when to do what, summer best practices, etc.

    Definitely, I know a lot about tuning as I'm sure others do. Could be a subforum of the Ski Shop.
    I need to be a conqueror, a liberator of my potential, kept prisoner all these years.

    Sounds good to me---somewhere where the information can be easily accessed.

    I also have questions on the different types of tuning (new ski tune, race tune, etc -----what differentiates them, how they impact skiing).
    Things might be handy to know re: equipment. For examples, skis are sticking to snow --possible issues: type of wax used, how recently skis waxed, etc.
    Tools that one might consider carrying.

    Awesome you guys! Can you set them up so they are super easy to find....like with a table of contents in a book or those "permanent" posts or possibly in summarized articles. If less work, I could help out with a first draft article that an authority could proof and finalize. I am not an authority (the opposite) so though well meant, I'm not sure this would save work! But the offer is there!

    P.S. Somewhere in this section, you could also include info on goggles and goggle lenses - what works best in what type of light, how to de-fog your goggles if needed. What's best in intense snow where you can't see very far?

    Winks, your suggestion reminds us of a project we've been meaning to get to. A series of articles on equipment and what to wear for skiing we're going to publish on the Your Ski Coach website. We've put so much time into Skier Village lately it's just kind of fallen to the back burner. Time to move it forward I think. Once done we could then easily just provide links within the table of contents format you suggested here at the Village. We could do the same thing with specific tuning and related topic articles. It would make it very easy for people to find and access the info they're seeking here.
