Ski Butlers delivery service has unveiled a new robotic tuning machine and new signature lines of Rossignol skis for the 2019-20 ski season, the company announced recently. The improvements, along with a slew of rental specials, highlight the coming season for the ski rental company that provides service at 48 ski resorts in North America and Europe.
The new, state-of-the-art Crystal Rock tuning robot is only the second edging machine of its kind in the Western U.S., according to Nikki Bongaerts, Senior Content and Communications manager for Ski Butlers.
The robot is used to create a sharp and durable edge on both skis and snowboards. It has a built-in GRIPtech system capable of producing a race-quality side edge with unique properties, according to Montana International, the robot’s manufacturer. The result is a fresh ski or snowboard that looks brand new and ready to rip.
Ski Butlers plans to keep all its full-time (human) tuners on staff at its many shops and hopes the new tuning robot will dramatically increase the number of skis and boards the company can tune daily. According to Bongaerts, a full tune-up includes base repairs, planning and polishing sidewalls, beveling edges with a stone finish, and a hearty wax treatment.
“That process used to be very time consuming on our tuners, but now we will have the most high-end, and fastest tuning process in the rental industry,” Bongaerts said. “Our tuners’ sole responsibility is to ensure our equipment is in the best condition possible and that every ski that lands in a customer’s hands is worthy of a five-star review.”
The Crystal Rock tuning robot will be busy this season taking care of a new fleet of Rossignol skis, the company announced recently. The new lineup includes several popular releases from the legendary ski manufacturer, including the Soul 7, Sky 7, Super 7, Seek 7, and Experience lines. Each line has its own unique features and characteristics. Let’s take a closer look:
