Tune With AVS

At Venture Sports, we take ski tuning seriously. Because we know what a difference a good (or bad) tune can make. That’s why we have invested over a half a million dollars into our state-of-the-art facility, sporting the only Montana Saphir 2 Pro robotic tuning machine in the area (and the first of its kind in North America).

Voted “Best Tune in the Vail Valley” more than all other shops combined, we have been the tuners of choice for Olympic athletes, X-Games medalists, World Champions, local legends, total beginners, and everyone in between.

Locally owned and operated for over a quarter century, we are the only shop to offer a 100% money-back guarantee on every tune we do. If you’re not totally satisfied with a Venture Sports tune, it’s free. Period. We do this for one simple reason: Our tunes are the best. If you haven’t had your skis tuned by Venture Sports, then you just haven’t had your skis tuned!

Signature Tune ­ $90
Simply the best tune money can buy. No matter your ability level, you will be one of the fastest skiers on the hill. Our customized vario structures are expertly designed to best suit the current conditions, accounting for snow temperature, moisture content and snow structure. The result: a ski or board that glides better and is quicker edge-to-edge. Professional P-Tex base repair removes any scratches, gouges or imperfections, while your ski’s edges are polished to perfection via proprietary variable base bevel technology. Finalized by our exclusive infrared wax process utilizing race-quality, temperature-specific fluorinated wax.

Full tune ­ $65
Our most popular tune features the same patented Crystal Glide finish as our Signature Tune, minus the vario structure and infrared wax, and brings your equipment back to looking – and riding – like new. This service includes P-Tex base repair, full base grind, edges precisely sharpened to your exact specifications, and a fresh coat of wax.

Edge and Wax ­ $40
Sometimes your boards just need a little touch-up. If your bases still look good, we will sharpen and polish your edges and put on a fresh coat of wax appropriate for our current conditions.

Infrared Wax ­ $20
This technology didn’t even exist until just a few years ago. The Infrared process uniformly heats your skis (or board), significantly increasing overall wax absorption and efficiency. Translation: You will glide faster and turn easier.

Mount and Prep ­ $40
Skis don’t work very well without bindings. Let one of our certified techs make sure your setup is safe and ready to ride.

Binding ReMount $45

Binding Test ­ $30
Every binding manufacturer recommends having your bindings mechanically tested at least once per season, or every 20 days of skiing, to ensure consistent performance. When’s the last time yours were tested?
