Ski and Bike Kare offers ski tuning and repairs; ski boot fitting, adjustments, and repairs; bike repairs and fitting; and retail sales.
Our ski shop staff tunes and repairs recreational and competition skis and snowboards -from waxing, minor and complete tunes, to hot-boxing and major repairs on bases and edges. They will discuss with you the best base and edge angles and wax for your needs. If you arrive from other states, it is a good idea to have your skis tuned to our local conditions. They provide overnight service on most jobs.
Our boot-department staff custom fits feet into the best model of boot we have to offer, based on the customer’s feet, skiing ability, and goals. They build custom footbeds for alpine, A/T, and telemark boots, and biking shoes as well.
During your time in Steamboat, our boot staff will also work with you to customize the fit of your new or current ski boots to best accommodate the needs of your particular feet to create a tight and comfortable fit, and to enhance your performance. For boots purchased from us, these boot-fitting services are offered as part of our fit guarantee. For a reasonable fee, the boot department staff also offers stance alignment analysis and subsequent boot-sole canting to further enhance your performance. Their service times vary from while-you-wait to overnight.
Our bike repair shop offers minor adjustments, complete tunes, and specific repairs or upgrades for your mountain, road, and commuter bikes. They also disassemble, pack, and ship bikes. Talk to them regarding your particular needs, and they can advise you accordingly. Their service time varies throughout the season from 24 to 48 hours.
Our bike-sales staff will help you select a bike of the correct size and type to meet your needs and interests. They also schedule personal bike-fitting sessions, on your bike, to configure it to the best riding position from which you may begin to make minor adjustments. Contact our shop for an appointment
