Windy City Ski and Snowboard Show

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Went down to Schaumberg IL (Chicago area) to the show on Saturday. Not as big or as busy as I had expected. However, it did give me the opporturnity to talk with the reps from many of the ski and boot makers. I talk to guys from Head, Elan, Nordica, Rossi, Vokl, Blizzard, Technica, and Dabello. The guy from Dabello was great. I was talking to him about getting a new pair boots, and he actually had me try on his recommended boot, the Acxion 9, which felt really good. And then took me over to one of the local ski shops and we talked with their bootfitter.

 

As a bonus, Smith optics was there and was fitted for a helmet and I got a 20% coupon for that helmet to any of the stores at the show.

Thanks for coming to the show!  I noticed you ski in Vail.  Viking has a trip to Vail April 1-7.  Direct flight from O'Hare to Vail Eagle.  100 new "best friends."  Parties, and good times.  Oh, and some great spring skiing.

Already have my big ski vacation planned for this year. But thanks for the info.

 

Talked to Kurt from Viking on Sat about getting fitted for some boots and custom inserts. Hoping to get down there on Thursday. Much more knowledgeable than what I'm used to up in Milwaukee.
