Chawn2112I'm sorry if there is already a thread. So according to the websites I need to tune it around every 10 ski days, but is it really necessary? Does it actually make a difference? I do wax though.
yung_gaiaevery 10 days? wtf no, twice a season. once at the beginning and once at the end and ur gucci
onenerdykidWhy would you tune your skis at the end of the season? And then do it at the beginning of the next? That makes no sense.i always get my skis tuned at the end of the season because the technician puts on some summer wax shit so they don't rust when they're being stored and unused?
You should tune your skis when they need to be tuned. Are your bases dry/white? Or damaged? Are the edges full of dings & burrs, or just super dull? Answering yes to these questions (when the ski is not an urban jib-only weapon) will point you in the direction of when you should tune your skis.
And yes having a freshly tuned ski is a very noticeable thing.

Chawn2112The guy at the shop told me I should tune around every 60hrs skiing which for me is like 12 days, base grind and edge
Chawn2112How bout the edge
