I can certainly appreciate wanting the base and side bevel angles to be consistent throughout the length of the ski but in all honesty, unless they are really messed up, on a powder ski, you'll likely not notice any difference in the way it skis. Best advice I can give you is, if you do decide to get them ground flat and the edges reset, make sure you take them or send them to a shop that, truly, knows what they are doing or you very well could get a ski back that is worse than what it was when you took it in. There are, unfortunately, MANY shops across the country that claim to be experts but in all actuality far from it.
If these are new skis and you have concerns about them, contact Nordica direct. Nordica is part of the Tecnica Group and they have always been very good to deal with and will very possibly have you send them back, either through your dealer or on your own, and will replace them with a new set. I think I've got a contact number for them if you would like to pursue that. I'd definitely go that route before I'd spend my own money to have a new powder ski stone ground flat.
