Det skal I lave

We will meet in my front yard with introductions from myself and possibly other participants. Drinks and a few refreshments will be offered. I will begin presenting on the science and benefits of waxing, tuning and safety. Tools will also be laid out for viewing and later use. Following the presentation, we will move through the process: repairing gouges, sharpening edges and waxing.

Questions are encouraged and welcomed anytime with additional resources / buying guides provided toward the end.

The experience will be approximately one to three hours depending on the number of guests and the condition of your skis/snowboards. You will walk away informed and with fresh tuned gear.

Please dress accordingly and bring extra layers for these cooler evenings. Don’t forget to bring your skis and snowboard and if you can’t, it’s still a great time to learn. If you have a specific wax you would like to use, please bring it.

I am a born and raised Calgarian and an ex-professional snowboarder with numerous medals including a Canadian National Slopestyle win. My wife and I own a ski in/ski out condo in Fernie, BC that we also share on Airbnb.

Throughout my competitive snowboarding career, I always maintained my own equipment and did the same at snowboard and ski shops.

Following this, I coached with the Alberta Snowboarding Association (Level 1 coaching and Level 1 theory certifications) and later volunteered my time as a board member. I am a Graphic Designer with a special interest in video. Using these skills I created four professional snowboarding videos sold in specialty shops across Canada.

Having immersed myself in this lifestyle, I am excited to now share my knowledge and expertise with you.

This experience takes place in my beautiful backyard, backing directly onto the popular end of the Bowness Lagoon. It is located in the historic community of Bowness (home to the 1988 Olympic Winter Games) with the ski hill visible from my front yard.

Great session! Brad is a great teacher. Truly experiential. We learned by doing, with Brad there to help guide us along the way. And I have a set of sharp and freshly waxed skis to prove it! I learned a lot and feel confident I can take care of my own skis going forward.

Brad was an excellent teacher - very humble and kind with lots of patience. My son and I learned a lot of new techniques for tuning up our skis thanks to Brad’s experience and ability to communicate these principles very clearly. The hands-on experience was very good!

Highly recommend this ski/snowboard tuning course. Brad was an amazing host and was able to provide high quality instruction in a beautiful setting (his backyard backs onto a river providing a awesome vibe). A bonfire was burning, keeping us warm while we learned all the steps to clean, sharpen, repair gouges and wax our snowboards. In addition, he offered snacks and warm drinks during the session. We walked away with new knowledge and freshly tuned gear!! Thanks Brad.
