Feeling Sharp: Wintersteiger TrimJet 71 Edging Machine

On January 14, 2015, World Cup Racer and co-owner, Sacha Gros, and Tuner, Barclay Rabin, got lucky. They put the brand new Wintersteiger TrimJet 71 to work by putting a Vista Bahn Ski Rental (aka VBSR) race tune on two pairs of Salomon skis and tore apart the Vail Mountain groomers!

When Vail mountain conditions are not powder, skiers spend most of the day on bumps and groomed runs. On groomer days as these, a skier relies heavily on the ski edges to provide control, stability and that oh-so-cool lay it out stance. You know the “Ted Ligety-like layout.” The Wintersteiger TrimJet 71 provides that amazing edge to keep your grip on the snow time and time again. A reliable tune let’s you know you can trust your ski in any condition. Vista Bahn Ski Rentals always hand finishes tunes for the extra special TLC you can only get at a family-owned shop.

The machine, first of its kind in Vail, makes edging skis flawless and leaves them race-ready for skiers of any ability. “Of course the edge and wax service at VBSR is already second to none,” says Barclay Rabin, “but now, watch out because theTrimJet is everything we had hoped for.” Sacha Gros agreed; adding “It’s Precision is unsurpassed. The quality of the edge is really amazing, but we still finish by hand for that perfect polished feel”.
