Stone Grinding

Typically only found in World Cup race rooms throughout Europe, our Montana Challenge parallel stone grinder, grinds skis flat and is able to create 8-segment Vario Structures (versus the industry standard of 4 segments) creating virtually seamless structures or patterns.
Net Result = Easier Turns & Enhanced Glide

Base & Side Edge Preparation

The Montana Challenge also Radial tunes the base edge creating greater elements of bevel in the tip & tail and less bevel underfoot. This affords extremely easy turn initiation, amazing edge hold underfoot and easy transitions to the next turn.
We can also provide a
Race Finish Edge that stays sharper for a longer period of time.
Net Result = Easier turns & Superior Edge Hold


Wax is applied via an indirect twin lamp infrared reflective light that uniformly heats only the base, eliminating the temperature shock of an iron or "cooking" the entire ski via hot boxing. Exact temperature regulation enables all types of waxes to penetrate deeper providing longer lasting glide & protection. This efficient application enables us to use the best waxes available.
Net Result = Superior & Longer Lasting Glide

Binding Installation

All binding work at Pierce is performed by Certified Technicians. For 50+ years no one has installed more bindings in the Midwest than "The man with the Golden Arm". Larry Lindstrom (pictured).
From systems to Biostance prescriptions we have you covered.

Binding Calibration

Skiing involves risk that can be reduced through the use of good equipment that is properly calibrated. We leave nothing to chance as we use the same machines used at the binding factory to monitor quality control. All bindings serviced are electronically calibrated according to skier height, weight, age , boot sole length, and ability.
