Help with my skis =) Answered

Is it possible to re-laminate the tops of my skis? or have it done?Does anybody know how I can keep them from chipping when they clash into each other in the air? Thank you for your time!


I would recommend a thin layer of fiberglass or carbon fiber.

Most skis are a chemically set resin over fiber cloth - fiberglass or carbon fiber. To the best of my knowledge once the layers separate, it's already lost a lot of it's strength. You could re-inject some fiberglass resin, and vacuum mold the ski to stick the layers back together, but its iffy. As for protecting the edges, are there not commercially available plastic guards that cap the top edges? Cant say for sure.
