If you are in Denver, Matt over at Edgeworks/Bicycle Dr. (On S. Broadway) is hands down one of the best ski techs in the State. He was done plenty of Dynafit Mounts and Insert Mounts (Don't worry if you dont know what that is...)

You can free hand it with this template quite easily, Most places will charge around 40$ or so, but it seems Bent Gate has their shit together these days, If you have not already bought Dynafits, DON'T and get some Plum's instead, You will be happier in the long run. Best Low Tech binding ever made!!!!!!!

Anecdotal and exaggerated.

If you're in the San Juans, I can do it for you. Just moved (back) to Telluride after working the ski shop thang for a bunch of years elsewhere. Brought all my tools and a Dynafit jig. Back in Cali I was charging ~1/2 the going shop rate, usually $25. slobmonster

Mounting any type of binding...AT, tele, or alpine...is easy. Do it yourself, learn something new, and save some $$$. Do some Google searches, download a paper template online, get a six pack, and have at it. Just make sure you measure and re-measure before drilling. Count Chockula

Totally disagree.. Dyanfit is bomber.

Larry's Boot Fitting is the shit if your in the Boulder area and will do a great job of mounting.

I could see them being a problem if you're a relatively large skier. I'm only 145# and I love them. I did break one once when I wound up having to use them at a resort and nailed a roller I couldn't see going way too fast. Amazingly, they got me through the rest of the day. I was surprised they actually held up so well considering how hard I tagged that thing. YMMV, esp if you're bigger.
