No I have never had a base grind.....isn't that something you get when your base is really dinged up?
Yes and no, if the structure is gone, or there wasn't a good structure to begin with, a base grind can really help with glide in spring slush. Not sure if it has any effect on really cold snow.
Here's a site with some comments about it. Not sure how accurate they are.
