Hello, I'm looking to get my quiver tuned and need a good shop near Delaware. DC, VA, PA, NJ, MD are all option but I don't want to drive 3 hrs each way.
I heard Buckman’s Ski and Snowboard Shop is an option - maybe the Ardmore, PA shop.
I've been skiing a long time but don't know too much about tuning and other maintenance.
What am I looking for when I go to the shop to get my skis tuned?
What should I ask them to do?
I've read some threads that say a 1b/2s - is that 1 deg bevel and 2 deg edge? A radial base grind? Edges, Stone Grind and Wax?
I think I'd like to go to a shop with an automated system, especially after reading the article in Powder Mag about the Montana and Wintersteiger Robots. The article said they are the next best thing to slice bread. But then again they are probably only as good as the operator.
Here is my TLC-needing quiver if it helps:
- Rossi Z9 (hard carving an oldie but goody)
- Icelantic Nomad RKR (powder days)
- Blizzard Bonafide (a little bit of everything...my go to ski)
- Black Diamond Revert, needs tips detuned (AT/BC setup with Dynafit for touring and some inbounds/side country laps)
