Long story, but in June I bought a pair of skis in Mammoth, CA, and had them mounted. Skied them the next day, and later in the day they started squeaking really badly. I also noticed some movement in the toe (my boot moving within the toepiece, i.e.) Brought them back to the shop, which looked them over, did a round of release tests, tightened a screw in the toepiece and told me they were good to go.
The next day the squeaking resumed, so I brought them to the Mammoth Mtn. ski shop for a second opinion. The guy there said they looked ok, but that I had three different DIN settings between the two skis. No idea why that would be the case.
So, I skied my creaky skis for the rest of the trip. I kept asking around, though, and I've been told that squeaking could be a sign of a bad mount and to check for space between ski and binding. There is very visible space. Also, the heel lever on one of the skis is loose (see video):
I'm back in PA and wondering what to do with these skis. If they were mounted improperly, can they be fixed? If not, what do I do next?
Here are pics of the space between ski and binding:
