Smooth Running Lifts and Well-Groomed Slopes

Boston, MA (PressExposure) January 24, 2012 -- The key to keeping the slopes in superb condition for skiers and snowboarders is not technique. Nor does Mother Nature help with slope grooming. It's having the right tools for the job.

Emerson Bearing of Boston provides the 24 hour service, product knowledge and the right bearing at the right price (whether it be for lifts, groomers, bullwheels or pump and compressor houses) to ski areas, ensuring that all of their maintenance needs are met.

Emerson Bearing are providers of bearings and related products for OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) global markets. They have recently established a dedicated Recreation Division, which primarily focuses on Ski Area Maintenance.

The company offers special solutions and carries a full line of bearings for Riblet, Yan, Hall and other manufacturers. They also offer related products such as Lubricants, Oil Seals, Linear Motion, Ball and Roller Bearings.

Emerson Bearing is a member of the National Ski Areas Association (NSAA). Among their esteemed ski area clients, Emerson Bearing provides bearings and more to Cochran's Ski Area, the nation's first non-profit, IRS 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt ski area in Richmond, VT. Since the 1960s, many of the Cochran family members have followed in World Cup winner Marilyn Cochran's footsteps and been on the U.S. and Olympic Ski Teams. Cochran's Ski provides affordable skiing and snowboarding, lessons and race training, in the Cochran tradition.

According to Steve Katz, Emerson Bearing Boston's president, "Weekends and holidays are the busiest and most lucrative days for ski areas. To not have a working lift due to a bearing failure or to be unable to efficiently groom the slopes because a part is needed, affects operations and is costly. We have a vast warehouse of bearings, with same day shipping and even same day delivery as needed, to ensure the smooth, continuous operation of all equipment."
