Discounts on ski tuning, ski mounting, ski repairs and ski boot fitting

For a short time each year Granite Chief offers the Ski Service Card, affording members a 50%* discount on all ski, ski boot, and binding services. Ski Service members also have an edge on demo-ing and previewing the latest ski and boot technology developments before the products are released to the public. Our Demo Day & Pig Roast, a member exclusive, is an end of the season celebration for skiers looking to test and purchase next season’s ski equipment.

Granite Chief, with over one thousand Ski Service Card members is the leader in ski and boot services. Our ski tuning, boot fitting, and repair facility has a deep rooted legacy dating back to 1976, the first of its kind at Lake Tahoe and Squaw Valley. The Chief was the first in the industry to implement factory level base prep, structure, and edge beveling. Our team of boot fitters, headed up Gunner Wolf, took fitting to a status of art and performance. Granite Chief s ski presses, used by ski manufacturers, allows us to reconstruct edge sections, delaminations, and core shots. Our proprietary Laser Guided Stance Alignment system provides predictable results, eliminating the inconsistencies of the outdated plumb-bob method.
