Mammoth Ski Shop Advice Please, Good People!
Moving out to Mammoth Lakes from jolly old Europe in a few weeks and I was hoping some of you lovely people could tell me what ski shops/techs I should trust out there. Who will mount my bindings perfect/fix a blown out rail real nice/be able to source obscure Rossi race parts for a decent price/bla bla etc… Thanks!
Kittredge does the best work in my opinion. P3 and Footloase are both good shops also, so you can't really go wrong. I have have some major repairs done and the Techs at Kittredge do amazing work.
Thanks for the reply mate, much appreciated!

I'll agree with the ski tech's at kitridge. Footloose has 2 of the best in town, but the others..... Kitridge's ski tech department seems to have a little less turn over. I don't know why since footloose has one of the lowest turnover rates in town overall. But if you need boot work, no question that footloose is one of the best shops in the country for boot work. Unless you want full tilts... then go to P3.
Mammoth Mountaineering will give you the best rates overall, but they are the rad guys in town and it's more of a... when we get around to it vibe. Anywhere else in town and it's probably the person's first season in Mammoth.
Gd info Rachy, cheers! looking to avoid the initial period of trying every ski shop in town and having my new opus mounted crooked :( hehe
For shop work and just a good old school shop that'sstill doing it, that's definitely kitteridge. By far the best spot in town, especially if you want "obscure race parts." Kitteridge definitely caters to all the racers in town which makes since because they provide the tightest tune.
As said footloose for boot fitting, don't actually buy your boots there unless you're reply in a pinch or no someone, usually free boot fitting is not worth the taxing you get in store.
P3 is your freeride shop, you'll find all the latest and greatest of twins and freestyle/freeride gear, they have a great demo program as well
