The MONTANA CHALLENGE is a fully automated robotic tuning machine that tunes both skis and snowboards to give you the best possible ski & ride experience on the snow.


  • Fully automated PowerVac system for the suction of all ski and snowboard surfaces
  • Stone grinding with various precision base patters
    • Pick the pattern that best matches your skiing or riding style
  • Race tunes with exact base and side edge angles and the newest base patters
    • 1-5 degree side edges
    • Infinite base edge degrees
    • Various base patterns
  • Double-sided edge grinding with pressure curve
  • Infinitely variable speed adjustment for the side edges
  • Base-beveling High-Tech
  • Tuning (HTT) of the side edges

Our Montana Challenge machine gives a distinct advantage to athletes due to the precision tuning and accuracy needed to aid in a racer’s performance. The race prep tune is specifically designed to help racers get ready for the season through a thorough examination of the ski to make sure bases and edges are completely flat before administering service.

The race prep tune starts with a moderate depth base structure to preserve the longevity of the ski as well as a blank and finer structure toward the outside of the ski to allow easier pivot points during high speeds of ski racing. Once the base structure is set the Montana Challenge machine sets the side edge using 2 ceramic discs and can bet set with a 3-5 degree side edge. All skis are finished with our HTT (High-Tech Tuning) stone. This applies a radial tune to the base bevel, which gives the base a slightly higher bevel at the tip and lower bevel underfoot.

Guest Service Manager

Amanda Cozzaglio

Amanda started at Bousquet in September, 2022.

She was born and raised in the Berkshires and currently resides in Pittsfield. She loves to be outside in the summer months hiking the various trails we have to enjoy, biking on the Rail Trail or kayaking anywhere there is water. Although she enjoys the warm weather over the cold, she is excited to appreciate the winter beauty on a whole other level and brush up on her skiing skills!

When Amanda is not working, she thoroughly enjoys spending time with her family (mainly her 5 nephews and 1 sweet little niece 😊)

Yaron Steinhauer

Yaron’s been in the Snowsports industry for 20 years, starting out as an instructor at Hunter Mountain. He leveled up with his Level 3 PSIA certification, then headed out west for a bit. Now he’s back east and has been our Operations Manager since the summer of 2023! He’s all about sharing his passion for the sport and making sure everyone enjoys their time on the snow.

Originally from Westchester County, NY, he’s now hanging out in the Berkshires, and if he’s not on the slopes, he’s probably biking around the hills (especially in the summer).
