Yeah but I can't imagine that ABQ is cheaper to fly into than DIA but to each there own. Anyways I'm not aware of any good used gear shops here in Abq. Sports Systems usually ahs some couple season old gear pretty inexpensive though.
At least this thread wasn't all that serious to begin with...
She clearly doesn't spend much time on Epic...It's a good year when we make it to July
I don't know about actual classes but the sticky in the back country section has links to quite a few online resources that would make a good starting point.

Everyone responding might be interested in researching what's called flow state which is an almost meditative state and is the actual psychological phenomenon that's happening when people are said to be "in the zone"   They also did a study and found that Neymar (famous Brazilian soccer player) has 10% of the brain activity that an amateur player has while playing. They believe that this holds true for all high level athletes which certainly implies that thinking gets in...
