Dedication to Nordic
Skihut's dedication to Nordic racers continues into our service departmant. We stock replacement parts for all Nordic race bindings and for most Nordic race poles. Our service technicians are intimately familiar with the delicacies of removing a Swix cork grip in order to cut a pole. They know the difference between a Nordic and an Alpine stonegrind. They understand the importance of a properly waxed and cared for race ski. They only brush in one direction.
We offer a full range of Nordic race-specific services. From hot-boxing to stonegrinds and even specific raceday wax applications. Every Nordic race need can be met at Skihut!

Also known as “Ragin’ Full-on”. Race Ready service includes all of the above plus saturation with Rex Base Oil following initial cleaning of post-grind skis. Then a healthy stint in the hot box with hydrocarbon base prep followed by base hardening. Skis will be ready for snow immediately after a scrape and brush.
We are thrilled to offer a totally new stone grind menu for 2012-2013! After extensive (and ongoing) research we have come up with some great grinds. We believe that these 4 basic grinds can easily cover any snow condition our customers may encounter.
“Da Ridge” – Named in honor of the brutal cold and abrasive snow often found at Giant’s Ridge. Da Ridge is a true cold snow grind.
“Hillsider” – That’s our neighborhood! Duluth’s Central Hillside. This is also a cold grind. But our proximity to Lake Superior usually means slightly higher temps and humidity. The Hillsider is a very universal grind erring on the colder end of the scale.
“Spring Break” – Minnesota style that is. Great for mid February to early March conditions here in MN. Best in high moisture, fresh snow.
“Sauna” – The name pretty much says it. Very high moisture, transformed snow is when you want to take a sauna.
