      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Favorite ski tune shops?

Recommended Posts

What about near Portland? wazzup.gif

 

Great question. A few years, ago when Sam Bennetts (sp?) was still open, I would say Mike Atch was the best (where is Atch now?). Currently, in PDX I am happily impressed by Neal's work at US Outdoor.

 

Any other PDX shoppes we should know about?

 

PS - it typically comes to the tech, not the shop.

I second Pro SKi, they seem to really understand the need to get the skis turned around quickly. You can usually get some good beta from those guys as well.

I've had less than stellar service at ProSki

 

They botched a dynafit mount job on a pair of my skis

 

They've botched a tele binding mount for a roommate of mine (actually mounted the bindings 3" apart from one another when comparing the two skis)

 

They've called me before to tell me a tune job was done...I've driven across town to pick up the boards only to find that no work at all had been done...they said they'd tune them quickly...but then a buddy of their came into the shop and his skis moved to the front of the queue...and I waited for over an hour.

 

yeah, they're nice enough guys, but the quality control has been lacking in my experience....

Hey Snaffle, where those experiences at the ProSki in Seattle, or North Bend? Martin Volken sold the Seattle store. I've only had great service at the North Bend shop, but no experience with the one in Seattle.

sorry 'bout that, i should have mentoned which store.

 

all my experiences were with the shop on Aurora....the dynafit screw-up was last season, the forgotten tune-up and tele botch were two years ago.
