My atomic R11's were looking a littel sad. I normally have my skis tuned by a pro at least once a year. The R11 were due so i took them to one of the better high end shops here in Park City.I paid $42.00 for a tune. I picked the skis up yeasterday and they were horrible! They wouldn't hold and edge were very flighty and as they were they were unskiable. I took them back to the shop. The guy behind the counter was suprised to see me back so soon. I told him what was going on. He looked at the skis and said the edges were sharp he didn't see any problems. I ask what degree bevels they they used. he said 1 and 1 we do that to all the skis. I ask did he know what the factory tune was foran atomic ski? he gave me a blank look. I then requested a refund. He said we tuned them so no refund. At that point I ask for the manager. To his credit it only took a few mins for him to refund my money. At The Park city Mountain Resort There are two locally well Known Ski Shops. Jans and Coles. I won't say what shop blow it. If you need work done on your skis Take them to Rennstall's Tuning . They are owned by Jan's Mountain Outfitters.
