Yeah, for sure get it fixed. Any decent shop should be able to handle it. Doesn't look TOO bad.

If it's to the core, you definitely need to get it fixed because yes, if moisture gets into your core it can damage it. Seeing that you ride it in the snow, if the damage is to the core, moisture is virtually guaranteed to get into it.

Hmm. Alright thanks. Do you think they will use epoxy at the shop? Any estimate on how much this is going to cost me?

It's really tough to tell much from those pics. They're pretty blurry. Anything I'd be telling you would be a pure shot in the dark. Just swing it by a good shop and have them take a look at it.

1. Marine grade 2 part epoxy (8$ home depot, k-mart wtv) - will last you like 50+ repairs.
2. Apply epoxy, have beer, wait 2-3 days.
3. File down excess with metal file and/or 180 grit sandpaper.
4. DONE

Those happen all the time, might as well get good at fixing them :P!!

Shop will charge you like 15$. Will take you 15 mins total by yourself.

Your chip looks pretty clear cut so it would be a good one to learn on.

I say fix it yourself.
