Recommend a shop to get my skis tuned near SLC?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Hello All. 

Long time lurker, first time poster. Im a Southeast/MidWest guy thats taking his first trip out to Utah, and need to get my skis tuned when I get there. As my name implies, I live in GA. I dont think there is a ski shop in my area, and if there was, I dont know that I would trust them with my skis. Anyway, any recommendations for shops in the SLC area that will do a decent job, and wont overcharge a tourist?

They do this year unfortunately.

 

Where will you be skiing/staying?

If you don't need a full tune, the ski demo shop near the tram at Snowbird does a good job on an edge and wax. They have a special where they will take care of your skis during lunch for about $25 or so. I have had a couple pairs of skis done there and have been very happy with the results.

I will be staying in Ogden, trying to ski Pow Mow, Snowbird, and maybe make my way up to Beaver Mt. as well.

if you are staying in Ogden, you also might want to check out Snowbasin. Very shwank. It has the most beautiful bathrooms. Oh, and skiing too with a great variety of terrain.

Really, delete PowMow and insert Snowbasin. Notwithstanding the cans, the terrain and lifts are light years better.

I would suggest skiing both Powder Mountain and Snowbasin. While at opposite ends of the spectrum in some ways, they both provide an enjoyable skiing experience.
It is a somewhat unique experience to take a snowcat run at Powder Mountain as well as to ski the sidecountry to the bus.
The food, the lodges, and definitely the bathrooms at Snowbasin are the best that I have experienced at any resort.

If you are going Park City way, these guys do some of the best work I have seen.

Can't help you with shops in and around Ogden.  Closer to I-80 on Foothill I'd recommend Sports Den.  Park City has a number of excellent tuners, I concur with Dakine, also Jans despite their volume does nice work.

Alpine Sports in Ogden is a good place for a tune. The repair shop at the base of Snowbasin is also an option.
