STOWE, Vermont — Stowe Mountain Resort announces the opening of ‘Stay Tuned,’ a new on-mountain, high-tech ski & board tuning and rental shop with the latest Wintersteiger Service Center equipment. The shop is located inside Stowe’s new Spruce Camp base lodge, the long awaited modern hub for guest services at the mountain. The facility includes restaurants, a bar, indoor & outdoor fireplaces, retail, tickets, and public lounge areas that blend the unique dynamics of Stowe’s mountains with the comfort of an innovative luxury base lodge. The beautifully designed building is located adjacent to the new ‘Over Easy’ transfer gondola, providing convenient access to the slopes of both Spruce Peak and Mount Mansfield.
Stay Tuned features the automated Wintersteiger Tunejet and Trimjet machines, featuring customized prescription tuning structures and state-of-the-art edging. The Tunejet Automated Stone Grinder produces high level World Cup quality base finishes making for smoother, faster and more predictable ski and snowboard performance. The Tunejet also features touch screen controls with programmable tuning data input that produces base structures for specific snow conditions and stores the data for future service. The Wintersteiger Trimjet is an automated Ceramic Disc Edge grinding machine that provides the most consistent and precise edge bevel geometry and finish on the market; making for smoother turns, better edge hold and more fun on the mountain. The added advantage of a Wintersteiger tune is if you like it, it can be duplicated every time you visit the shop.
“Stay Tuned is a technologically advanced shop that fits perfectly with all the new services and amenities added at the mountain,” said Jeff Wise, Stowe’s communications director. “Personalized experiences, high-quality and convenience are the central themes throughout Stowe’s new base lodge, luxury hotel and greatly improved mountain resort,” adds Wise.
Wintersteiger is a world market leader in winter sports. Wintersteiger Ceramic Disc technology is used in every major ski factory worldwide. Atomic, K2, Volkl, Salomon, Rossi, Head, Dynastar and virtually every other major manufacturer use Ceramic Disc Edge finish. The Wintersteiger Trimjet replicates the original factory precision finish and geometry. More info at www.wintersteiger.com
