Beesey is a leg­end in pre­ci­sion tun­ing

Mt Buller News - - FRONT PAGE - LE­GENDS OF THE MOUN­TAIN By Liz Webb

AT the high­est level, ski and snow­board tun­ing can be the crit­i­cal fac­tor be­tween life and death.

At in­ter­me­di­ate level, well-tuned snow equip­ment can make or break your day on the slopes.

Find a gifted equip­ment tuner and you’re sure to no­tice im­me­di­ate im­prove­ment in your style.

One of the best on the moun­tain is Nathan Beesey (al­ways known as just ‘Beesey’), a very quiet but ded­i­cated Mt Buller leg­end, who is well known and re­spected around the moun­tain.

Al­most 15 years ago Beesey started in Arl­berg’s Ski Hire, run­ning it for five years.

When ‘Big Dave’ be­came the ski hire man­ager at Black Moun­tain, Beesey moved there to head up the work­shop.

Beesey can run his hands along your skis and tell you ex­actly what’s wrong and what he can do to make your ride near per­fect.

He’ll de­scribe the spe­cial prepa­ra­tions re­quired, then re­pair, grind, fill, wax and cre­ate per­fect edges to suit your level.

And af­ter all these years on the job, he’s still pas­sion­ate about the magic he per­forms, no mat­ter what your snow sport level.

It’s like watch­ing an artist cre­ate a mas­ter­piece.
