    Best place in Whistler for a grind and tune?

    (No, not that kind of grind and singing!)

    My Stormriders need some love after last season. I was going to wait until December since, well, the snow conditions in Whistler still pose a danger to everybody's bases, but I am reconsidering. I need better edges than what I can do in a few minutes.

    The bases need some ptex fill (I candle plugged a gash down to the metal to protect it a bit, but it'd be nice to have that unplugged, the metal cleaned—it rusted a bit, and done nicely), and then just a good grind and edge tune.

    Where should I go?

    Yes. I crushed the tip on my carbon dps. Compressed tip edge, it was bad. Runaway ski down DOA! Haha.

    They did a killer job fixing it up.

    I'm sure one of the Aussie chicks in any of the bars would gladly give you a 'grind and tune'.
