Best shop for tuning in Summit County, CO

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Since the last thread on this is 4 years old, I just wanted to pose the question again, as the quality of shops changes with their equipment and staff. Anyone have any recommendations on the best shop in Summit county for tuning skis? I'd prefer a top-quality hand tune to a machine tune, if possible. I have a pair of powder-ish skis that i'm looking to slightly increase the side edge bevel on. Thanks!

Does anyone actually tune there? (he asks facetiously)

I'm glad you added "facetiously." From some posts you'd think nobody west of Denver ever needs to tune because every single day of the season is a fluffy powder day, top to bottom and bell to bell. Like metal edges are entirely wasted on us. Rrrrright. cool.gif

One wishes.  But of course you guys do get hardish snow (if less of the i-word).  I recall Sibhusky saying she'd gotten lazy with her edges since moving to Montana.

Well, there's no 3 degree bevel on them, that's for sure. Although at this point it might be a case of me digging in my heels to pressure.... Lol!

I did have an awakening about tuning about two years into living here when I hit Heep Steep. Don't think they've even gotten that bad again... But, yeah, most of the time you can get away with it.

I'm curious. Where'd you go? What'd you think of the tune?

 

N.B. I work at A Racer's Edge.
