Follow Berkshire East's Dave Houghton as he refurbishes a pair of rental skis.
Dave is one of many dedicated employees at the Berkshire East Ski Area in Charlemont, MA. He takes pride in the quality of his work in maintaining hundreds of rental skis for the area's customers.
In his own words he says,
"For someone who is experiencing rental skis, they're getting top quality skis and not some piece of garbage. All of our rental skis frequently go through the process of base grinding, the edge preparation, the wax, and the buffing.Then you've got yourself a well conditioned ski and we've got a happy customer who is learning how to make turns, learning to ski and having a great time."
It's not enough that he's a craftsman ski tuner, Dave is also a member of the Western Massachusetts band, "Fancy Trash" and contributed the background acoustic guitar piece "The Giving Tree" for this production.
