Damaged ski - how/where to repair

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I have somehow managed to damage my ski on my latest ski trip and am unsure of how or where to get it repaired? I'm not bothered about the cometrics but don't want water ingress into the core or any issues with the edge as it appears to have been "disloged/come away" a bit.

Any advice?

Send it to the Piste Office, Spyderjon will sort it if it can be sorted, and give you good honest advice even if it isn't in his business interest on what to do.

I would ask Spyderjon in the first instance if you are unsure of what you are doing or if you are worried about the integrity of the ski.

If you are interested in a DIY fix then you could potentially use 24hr epoxy, a hairdryer and a C clamp(s) to fix this. You would:

1) make sure the damaged areas are clean and dry
2) mix the epoxy
3) use the hairdryer to warm the epoxy such that it is less viscous
4) work the runny epoxy into the damaged areas
5) clamp it until the epoxy cures

Were it me, the topsheet damage says easy DIY fix, the edge damage probably merits a second opinion.
