Good mounting shops around Boulder/Front Range
I live in Longmont and I'm looking for a shop to get my skis mounted at. I've always gone to sports authority but I'm afraid they'll eventually screw up my skis. What are some shops in boulder(or around it) that you would recommend?
jibij was in boulder, it's dunzo (RIP)
i know it's like the complete opposite of where you said you wanted to get your stuff mounted, but if you can make it to breck sometime before the snow starts falling, i really prefer colorado freeride on main street, their prices are fair, work is great, and they've caught very hard to spot warrantable issues in my stuff even
^ I second that for CO Freeride. Mountain Wave is also SUPER legit and relatively inexpensive. There's really nothing in Boulder now. I've had some fuck ups at Ski Deals.
Do you ever wanna, like, look at a chick and bare your teeth? You know, like a chimpanzee? -Dan
Sam at Mountain Wave is the most legit ski tech I have ever had. Mountain Wave is also where notables like Bobby Brown get their stuff done, and the owner John is the fucking man. They will bend over backwards for you and always do incredible work, all the techs are great.
I love skiing.
Larry will do them as well, but he won't be open until closer to the season
Larry is hands down the only guy I will get fitted by and buy boots from ever since I got my last pair from him. He is super nice, extremely knowledgeable, and his prices were really fair IMO. Take beer.
as noted before, if you can make the drive up to summit, Scott or Steve at Recycle Ski and Sport in Frisco are great for mounting. I trust those two with my stuff everytime (just make sure it's not Neal). They'll usually hook a ski bum up too with great prices or trades for service.
Haha I'll have to have one of my parents bring the beer.
I just got my license so I don't think my mom would let me drive up to Breck. We may be up in Vail around august for one of my dad's business trips. Any good places up there?
i couldn't tell you, i avoid vail at all costs. if you're going that way anyway just dip into breck on the way?
larry's sends skis to be mounted at Christy's...and to thread creator- DON'T go to christy's, they mounted my skis and all the binding pieces were set at different DINs. sweet.
mountain wave and colorado freeride in breck both seem like the best choices (based on this thread and what i've heard from friends)
"clinical studies show that if you act g or afterbang and you are not high, you are faking it." -bpalmer
I might do that
^I went to christy's once to move my bindings closer because of a change in boot size and ended up with a forward mounted pair of invaders
The Eskimo Shop on County Line Road in Denver. Kinda near Centennial. They are family owned and they are super chill. They never fuck up my gear and I'm sure that if they did, they'd give me like 3 pairs of new skis haha.
I'm like no other, one of a kind, my sparkling wine
Santana DVX make you wanna have sex
don't bring them to larry, it takes forever. and he did my brothers and you can see the screws almost popping out on the bases
