Ski Tuner

Too busy to bring your skis in to be tuned? Call up one of these shops - they'll show up at your hotel or condo door, hone your edges overnight, and bring them back first thing in the morning.

* ASPEN, COLORADO: For $45 (the price of its premium tune; there's no extra charge for pickup service), Aspen Sports will grab your gear in Aspen or Snowmass and bring it back to the front desk by 8:15 A.M.

* JACKSON HOLE, WYOMING: Located near the gondy, JH Sports picks up skis at the Teton Club, Snake River Lodge, or the Four Seasons (all in Teton Village). Prices vary;

* WHISTLER BLACKCOMB, BRITISH COLUMBIA: Call Profile Ski Services from anywhere in the Village for your repairs-and get a major tune for less than you'd pay at most area shops (C$39, including collection and delivery). 604-935-2950

* MAMMOTH MOUNTAIN, CALIFORNIA: Ski and Snowboard Valet, run by Frenchman Albert Arnaud, does tunes for $35-and will even pick up and deliver three miles outside of town.
