Alta/Snowbird Rentals and demos

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I am staying at Snowbird in April(without a car) for 6 days.  I have been riding for 16 years in the east.  I have NEVER been out west before.  .  I am going to be demoing some new noodles when I am out there.  Which ski shop is the one that should be getting my business?  Which one is the best?  Also I am DYING to ride the new Salomon Shogun.   Who carries Salomon there?

I'm partial to these guys.  They make it very convenient to try really fun skis.

You mention "riding" a couple of times and then talked about the Salomon Shogun (a ski).  Are you a skier or boarder?  Or were you a long-time boarder now skiing?  Confused......wink.gif

sorry, I am a long time skier, I just call us all snow riders.  I don't differentiate.  I am indeed DYING to try the SHoguns

Try the Deep Powder House at Alta. They have the Shoguns for sale and they usually have demos for everything they sell. I also saw one of their guys riding the Rocker2 the other day.

 

Alta Sports also has the Shogun for demo and sale.

 

I personally like demoing from the Alta Ski Shop. They let you demo an unlimited number of skis on any given day. Try one ski for a few runs, bring it back and try something else. They've got a couple of locations on Alta including a mid-mountain demo shop. However I don't think they have any Salomons for demoing.
