SE PA shop for bindings mount

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I just ordered skis online. What is a good shop for mounting bindings in southeast pennsylvania and how much do they charge? Has anyone had any luck with REI in Conshohocken for this?

Wick's in Exton.

Buckmans can be unpredictable - with a central facility, thus the people you speak with are not involved with the actual work.

Anybody use Salter's?

post #6 of 8

Salters is well respected in SE PA for boot fitting, skiers travel a distance for that and boot - ski alignment.    Bought skis & boots there a few years back, and have been very happy with the fittings and the service (tunes afterward).   Don't know what they charge for binding mounts, you could give them a call.

I was in both Buckman's and REI yesterday.


Buckmans posted price is 75.


REI quoted $50, but I'm  a member.


As long as they have the manufactures mounting template, I would trust any of the shops listed.


In the Ski Shop Slang post, this is referred to as a "screw job" as all the shop does is screw bindings down. Pretty funny.

Unfortunately, UPS killed my skis during shipping. I have to send them back and wait for replacements.

My list so far is

Ski Bum $70

REI $50 (for members)

buckmans $75

Wick's $79


The Loft near camelback shows $30 on their web site. I emailed them to confirm.

Maybe I could get it done in the morning during a weekday before going to camelback?

I know that I asked for SE PA but I trying to keep it convenient, cheap, and done right.

I think the others are overcharging a lot. REI seems reasonable though.

Did I miss any other places?
