Default Ski tuning

Looking for recommendations for a ski tuner in the lakes region. My skis were damaged at the last tuning by a local shop that ground the texture out of the bottoms. After one terrible run on them, I paid $40 to a shop out west to have them fixed. The edges need to be sharpened again, this time I hope it is by someone that knows how to deal with high-performance skis and beveled edges.

Piche's should take care of them no problem. They work with the Gunstock ski team

Thanks! 40 minutes drive for me, but worth it if they get the job done right.

Default Ski tuned.

I can show you how to tune skis. I've been racing since I has a teenager. An experienced racer on the Masters, WMRL and NASTAR circuit.

Ski racers don't trust business establishments to tune skis. If we need a major bottom grinding or ski repairs, we would go to S&W in Concord NH or The Race Room in Lincoln. http://www.theraceroom.com/

I have a portable unit and can show you at your work bench. A couple of beers and your good!

If you do go to Piche's, you may be able to call ahead to be able to have them do it while you wait. I did that earlier this year, but they said to come midweek and before, say, 1 pm. After that they get busier with school kids' needs and you'd have to leave them. Waiting a bit for them certainly was shorter than a second 45-minute trip.

If your racing every weekend, if not every other. Most recreational skiers once or twice a year is my guess. Like Broadhopper I tune in the basement

Thanks for the lead on Piche's. They brought back the magic to my skis in a $35 tuning. Very happy with the work!

Glad it worked out, it's remarkable what a good tune can do. Enjoy the rest of the season.
