Gear West Alpine has been on snow for most of June! Dana Henry, Gear West’s Alpine Service Manager, just returned from Mammoth Mountain, CA where he spent several weeks with Fischer USA and worked alongside Minnesota’s Team Gilboa.  For Fischer, Dana managed the Test Center coordinating ski testing between the attending teams, coaches and athletes and keeping the ski fleet in exceptional condition - waxed and tuned-for the ski racers.  Dana then remained in Mammoth and provided technical ski assistance to Team Gilboa’s coaches, athletes, and parents about the art and maintenance of tuning and waxing.



Dana’s downhill ski work at Mammoth follows up an earlier trip to Colorado in February, where Dana tuned for the USSA Women’s Alpine Ski Team NorAm tour.  His ski work, along with other top technicians helped the women’s Ski team ensure top slots for the Europa Cup and other FIS races. 

Back at Gear West, Dana is now ready to work on your skis. Visit us to talk racing or bring your skis in for a tuning consultation and plan ahead for next winter.  Dana loves to talk and looks forward to sharing all that he observed and practiced.
