What a Difference a Tune-up Makes

TwinPeaksby Skimum Denice

This summer I purchased a demo pair of Rossignol Soul 7 skis. I was pretty stoked about finding them since my husband bought a pair the season before and loved them!

The first day I took them out, however, I was pretty shocked and upset about my purchase. I could ski in the moguls okay with them, but as soon as I got on groomers it was like I had never skied before!  I had heard that they might be a little harder to ski on groomers, but I had no idea it was going to be this hard.  I wanted to go one way and my skis would go another.  My experience was so bad that on my drive down the canyon I had decided to sell them and hopefully get my money back.  My husband suggested that I go get them tuned just in case they weren’t done right. I couldn’t imagine a tune-up would make that big of a difference, but I decided to give it a try.

I took them to Twin Peaks, a local ski shop, and they had them ready for me the following day.  I went to Snowbird to give them one more try.  I literally was scared to death to ski on them, for fear of hurting myself in a fall.  Oh my goodness!!!  I can’t even tell you how excited I was as I took my first run down.  I could ski again!!!  Not only could I ski, but I felt like I skied pretty well.  The groomers were no problem at all.  I actually felt more
comfortable on them than I ever have.  I love my newly tuned Soul 7 skis. Needless to say, I am sold on regularly tuning your skis.
