A high maintenance wife is better than none at all.

Took a day off work.

 

Went to Kirkwood with Mrs5150's skis last Thursday. Left her skis at their shop for a major tune. Skied four hours. Picked up her skis skis and drove home.

 

Mrs5150 tested her skis at the local hill on Saturday. She smiled. Skis fixed!

 

End of story.

End?

 

Except you didn't tell us what was fixed.

 

Base high? edge high?  hanging burr?

 

Did the second shop evaluate and report? 

 

I bet the first shop would benefit by your response.  Or shall we  condemn in contempt?

Base high due to first shop trying to fix their f-up.

 

Second shop: facepalm. I agreed.

 

First shop: "ah dude, sorry."

 

So due to three attempts to fix skis, shop 1 ground the edges lower than the base. I saw that right away.  I said to shop one, here is what you did and you ain't touching the wife's skis again, ever.Their Boss was gone and I had my priorities. Her skis needed to be fixed more than I needed to make a point. I did make two in person attempts to talk to boss, but he was not there.

 

I will not name names in public out of respect to the local hill which is a fine place to ski.

3-4 merciless grinds trying to over correct previous carnage certainly shortens the lifespan of a pair of skis.  However, if she likes the way they now handle I'd not grind them anymore and just touch them up here and there for the next 100 ski days hahaha..

haha - ya fer sure. 

 

 

 

OP - now that you're happy with the shop tune, it's time to invest into some hand tuning tools. 

 

Take control of your ski maintenance. 

 

There's lots of direction on this site.
