Free Tuning Clinic in Truckee Nov. 19 with Willi Wiltz

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

If you've never heard of this guy, you haven't paid attention during World Cup and Olympic broadcasts. He's been the tuning magician for Bode, Daron, Tommy Moe and others. StartHaus is putting this thing on. It's at 6pm in the Larkspur Hotel on Brockway Rd. in Truckee on Saturday night the 19th. I've been on the fence about coming up to Tahoe next weekend, but I'm pretty sure this will clinch it. Willi has forgotten more about tuning skis than I'll ever know.

And right by there is the 50/50 brewery. Happy hour before and follow up drinks after? Maybe get a growler to go and take it to the clinic?

If you're in the area don't miss this.  I took a tuning clinic from Willi several years ago and it was outstanding.

Well worth the time, especially if you are new to performance tuning. Willi spent over four hours last Thursday night with the group from Suburban Sports. He covered everything from bevels and grinds, to hiding skis from other techs on the World Cup circuit so they wouldn't find out what made them so good.

I think a good time was had by all.

Wait, this thing is going to be 4 hours long? I better get a growler from 50/50 for sure.

I left at 11pm thursday night. And there were still a bunch of people milling around and talking with Willi. A short time ago I was talking with Peter from Suburban, he said that they were there a lot later.

Better make it two Growlers. Just to be safe.

Yeah, Willi used my Moly Hybrid wax on Palmer's board that got him on the Olympic team in Torino 2006.
