Stone Grinding

Typically found only in World Cup race rooms throughout Europe, our Montana Challenge machine is a parallel stone grinder that grinds skis flat, sets the side edge bevel, Radial tune(s) the base edge and has the capacity to create a Race Edge Finish and Vario Base Structures. When you combine the finest in ski tuning machinery with the knowledge of how to run it the net result is the fastest grinds in the Midwest.
Net Result = Easier Turns & Enhanced Glide

Edge Preparation

  • Side Edge Grinding - side edges are set exactly at 1, 2 or 3 degrees.
  • Base Edge Grinding - base edges are Radial Tuned.
  • Race Finish Edge Grinding - side edges that stay sharper – longer.
Net Result = Superior Hold & Easier Turns


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" of the entire ski via hot boxing. Exact temperature regulation enables all types of waxes to penetrate deeper providing longer lasting glide and protection. A far more efficient application process enables us to use the best waxes resulting in a superior finished procuct.
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.
