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
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.

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

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 to
"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
your 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 condition.

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

The Rental Department includes downhill, snowboards, cross country and
telemark equipment and snowshoes.

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.
