Edge Control

Ski Shop

The ski shop that has featured overnight tune-ups and ski repairs since
November 1978.

Brand names you know and trust.

Service you can rely on.

Overnight service has been bringing customers back to
Edge Control
for years. Originally Blair Timmins and Terry Harris started
Edge Control
in the world’s smallest ski shop in what was little more than a storage
area of the Astoria Hotel.

Edge Control
offered was revolutionary back in 1978: high quality, professional, overnight
tune-ups and ski repairs.

Until then, this ski town was populated with
skiers who slaved over their own equipment for hours or put up with round
edges. A couple of thin snow years taught the locals the value of having
the pros and their high tech machines return their rock damaged boards
"new-from-the-factory" condition.

Terry is no longer involved with the day-to-day operation
but you can see Blair in the shop every day, except when he’s on the hill.

Edge Control
now serves you from its conveniently located, main-street
location (Connaught Drive, across

from the steam locomotive)

in a modern
retail store.

They still specialize in overnight tune-ups using "state of the art" equipment
run by highly knowledgeable, professional technicians.

The equipment they use (valued at about the price of a new "well-equipped"
car) is no longer just a base-grinder.

The advances in ski and snowboard
preparation equipment now let the trained professionals dial up the amount
and degree of
equipment requires. They can predetermine the angle the edges will
honed to. The bases can even be sintered or
"patterned" so as
to better accept and hold the new wax job.

The result: skis or boards returned to factory or race-ready

Boot fitting has become a shop specialty. Using Superfeet “trim to fit”, custom moulded foot supports and their hydraulic shell expander, any boot can be made to fit.

What’s new?

  • "Fair Trade", fleece lined sweaters from Laundromat.
  • Flex relief:

    Ski and binding systems can now eliminate the boot and binding influence
    on a ski’s flexing. Look to models from Volkl and Head.
  • Lighter skis:

    Volant has a new stainless steel skirt construction that lightens its
  • Boot improvements:

    Heat moldable boot liners improve fit and add warmth. Models from Head,
    Lange and Technica improve on the technology with
    Hot Form

    A thin metal mesh imbedded in the boot’s liner allows the boot to be
    plugged in for custom fitting. The liner warms, expands and molds to
    the exact shape of your foot.

    As a wonderful spin off of this technology, an adaptor that plugs into
    your vehicle’s cigarette lighter lets you warm your boots on the drive
    to the hill.
