What is a good price for a full ski tuneup?

post #1 of 4

I see people doing it for $20-$40. What is a good price for a tune up and sharpening?

Full tune; Base grind & edges tuned $50-$60 and up depending on the shop, equipment and what's involved. Hand tunes can be more.

The response to your question depends on what "tune up" means to you.  For $20-$40 you might get a wax and perhaps a generic edge grind.  If your bases are damaged and need p-tex repair or replacement, edges filed to factory specifications versus what the machine is set to (generic base and edge bevel) or a core shot repaired expect to pay more.  Think auto wash and wax versus auto body work.  I am usually unhappy with low cost edge grind and hot waxes so do this work myself.  I do spring for a basegrind or two a season and willingly pay $60 for this service at a shop with a well maintained Montana machine and technicians that know how to use it.

For most (good) shops an edge sharpen/wax should be 20-30, belt tune 30-40, stone grind 40-50.  If you want a race tune with full grind and edges sharpened you're looking closer to 60 or 70 (plus any LF or HF wax you might want).  If you're paying less than any of those prices it's probably not because you're getting a good deal but because they're not doing a good job.
