The Montana Challenge Max stone grinder featured at Solid Edge Repair is a precision machine that puts a pattern in the flat and smooth finish of the base after stone blanketing or wet sanding. The minute striations or lines in the bottom material made by the stone grinder allow the ski to slide over the snow in a directional fashion. It also keeps suction from developing as the heat generated by the motion of the ski tends to bind to a completely flat ski base.
On the Montana Challenge Max stone grinding can get very technical, to the point where very hard ceramic chips in the machine can be programmed to apply various patterns to the ski base. In the world of competitive ski racing, ski engineers experiment with different patterns to find the best pattern for snow conditions and type of race, i.e. slalom, giant slalom etc. A good stone grinding can be beneficial because the moisture content of the snow creates suction on a flat ski. A flat ski is held onto the snow, but a good stone grind allows faster speeds, smoother glides and more natural movement.
