Disregarding any lines drawn on the top sheet, what is the best way to "guess" where to mount skis?

I like to mount skis close to an electric outlet, that way my drill works. I find this works 100% of the time.

I mount my skis as close to the lift as possible. This makes for less skating around.....

I used a cordless drill last time.  It was sufficient to do one pair, but that's about it.

To OP I recommend balancing the ski on your finger to find the midpoint weight wise and make a mark.  Measure the running length and mark that midpoint, then put the boot sole mid somewhere inbetween (but back a skosh).  Some folks still go ball of foot on the mid point.

Or, the best place to mount a ski is in the tech room of a ski shop

PhilT, did you get the pm I sent you?

sounds like maybe snowfan is going to really tell you.

 

But, in the middle of all that fun, and at the end of this post, is the method I have also heard. Measure tip to tail, find the center, put the ball of the foo there. thing I still don't get is given the variablility of tips and tails, why is the measured center considered the center? would center of running edge mean anything?

 

maybe I should stick to: as near to the lifts as possible. remember the hollywood mount?
