Ski & Snowboard Services

Another First for Plaine's & Berkshire County

For over 40 years, the tuning shop at Plaine's has delivered outstanding quality and service and this year, we’re making it even better.

We are proud to be Berkshire county’s only service shop with factory tuning capabilities. We have invested in a world class Wintersteiger stone grinding machine. Wintersteiger stone grinders are the machine of choice by most ski manufacturers and are renowned for their ability to produce that factory tune your skis came with. Wintersteiger stone grinders are utilized by many world cup ski tuning technicians and provide the best performing structure for any snow condition.  This means a better gliding and an easier turning ski. Come experience Plaine’s Performance & Fit Guarantee!

We know ski and snowboard tuning inside and out. Who better to tune your alpine skis or snowboard than the experts at Plaine's?

Those in the know, know structure is king, and Plaine's has the ability to put a base structure on your skis or snowboard to match whatever snow conditions arise. From cross hatch to broken linear, we know that the right structure ensures a good glide into your transition. Making you the best skier or snowboarder you can be. And if you're a ski or snowboard racer looking for a linear structure for speed events, we can hook you up with a tune as good as it gets.
If structure plays the part of king, then edge bevels play the role of queen bee. Using the most advanced tuning equipment in Berkshire County our expert ski and snowboard techs create the bevel angles that are right for your ability, your skis or snowboard and the conditions. Plaine's edge grinder gets your edges back to factory finish, but our expert techs are the ones that customize your skis and snowboard to your needs.
They know that a higher base edge bevel is great for powder skiing but not ideal for hard pack, where a 1 degree bevel does the trick. Want a tune that allows you to carve and ski powder? We'll set you up with a 1 degree base bevel and 2 degree side bevel which gives your skis and snowboard the flexibility to perform well in both. As if that isn't enough, the quality of our hand-tuning ensures that yours will be the fastest, smoothest, best looking skis or snowboard on the mountain.
At Plaine's we like to think of your skis and snowboards as ours. That's why club racers, Masters racers, ski patrollers, and ski and snowboard instructors trust Plaine's to tune their skis and snowboards too. So drop your skis and snowboards off with us and be on the snow with freshly tuned skis and sowboards the very next day.

Stance Balancing and Custom Boot Fitting Lab

We are proud to announce Berkshire County’s only Stance Balancing Lab and Custom Boot Fitting.  Cold feet, cramps, hot spots, knee pain, even problems with over rotating or drifting skis can be the result of an unbalanced stance and poor boot fit. Comfort merely begins with a proper sized boot but real performance begins when a boot fitter analyzes your stance, biomechanics, alignment and skier-graphic then builds a balanced anatomical platform that provides you with a mechanical advantage and perfectly balanced stance.  Come experience our Performance Fit guarantee!

Our boot fitting master, Jeff Grella, has been boot fitting and building orthotics for over 30yrs.  Jeff’s experience as a board certified Pedorthist, ski instructor, race coach and Director of R&D for VANS Snow and Pro-Tec helmets & protective gear has inspired his lifelong passion for comfort and performance.  Jeff started his professional career as a ski instructor in Killington VT before becoming head YSL race coach in Breckenridge CO.  Spending 13yrs with 130+ days/yr in ski boots fueled Jeff’s passion for boot fitting and proper stance alignment.  His passion for comfort and performance led him to the footwear industry where he spent the next 20yrs in product development building running shoes for Reebok, Saucony, Vans Snow and Pro-Tec.  We welcome his return home to Berkshire County to share his passion for comfort and performance.  Call 413-499-0294 now to schedule your stance analysis and experience our Performance & Fit Guarantee!
