Sugarbush tuneing

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I am heading up to sugarbush for the first time this weekend, I need a good tune after doing some early season tree skiing.

 

Any suggestion on a good place to get a tune around sugarbush?

Alpine options on the sugarbush access road is a good shop.

Race Stock sports is half an hour away in Waterbury, but might be more than you need for most purposes.

I live here. Waitsfield to be specific. Alpine Options or Mountainside up in Sugarbush Village are both great places with good people. Skiing right now requires sharp edges. We are in dire need of a big storm.Have a good weekend. They made a bunch of snow off the Northlynx lift and the skiing up there wasnt bad Wednesday.That was on freshly blown snow. Manmade snow is good the day it is blown the next day it just turns to icy styrofoam.It has been flurrying all day so theyre probably getting a few inches. I didnt go up today but I know they work incredibly hard to make the mountain as skiable as they can.

RaceSTock doesn't tune.

 

In Waitsfield, I'd hit Ski Sharp.

The 2 trails off Northlynx were still good yesterday (Thurs.)

They were blowing snow on Snowball top to bottom (bottom wasn't opened yet) & lower Organgrinder. Snowball was sweet & so was Organgrinder but visibility was tough in the guns on Organgrinder.

 

I used to get my skis tuned at the shop at the bottom of the Sugarbush access rd. (just up from the junction of rt. 100. Forget the name but they used to do a decent job & were reasonably priced.

Not sure about Ski Sharp's over night ski tuning services.  He mostly deals with high end and race stuff

At the intersection of Route 100 and the Sugarbush Access Road: Vermont North Ski Shop.  My local favorite.  Great service, great people.  They definitely do overnight services.  I think they are your best bet.

You're talking about Vermont North.  They're my favorite local shop.  I'd go there.
