Ok i understand :D thx

How often can you do this at a SG/DH

I mean the edge is much smaller than at normal skis. If you need to grind them every 30minutes on ice i can't believe you can do this very often :-?

Correct. Once you have you tune parameters set you have to simply maintain the edge. Unless you hit something or you want to change your angles. Many of us have multiple skis with varying tune parameters.

But yes, these types of skis come with very little edge to work with. A sidewall planer can be your best friend. :D And its amazing how paper thin you can make edge and still have it perform.

Honestly most of my skis, the bases delam and come off before the edge wears out. :roll:
