As far as "how many times", that depends on the construction of the ski, condition of the ski and proximity of the holes in relation to each other and where the new ones will be.
As for value, it greatly diminishes value of the ski the more times it's been drilled...TGR had a fairly accurate way of calculating a ski's value based upon how many times the ski's have been drilled.
50% of current selling price (not MSRP)
-10% per year old
-10% per times drilled, per core shot, per delam...etc
-10% per marker binding attatched
+10-30% for Rare/High-demand item
