where to get demo skis near Wolf Creek?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I will be visiting family in Albuquerque and then spending a few days at Wolf Creek in January 2013, sleeping in Pagosa Springs. Can anybody recommend a shop nearby to demo skis? I'm particularly interested in trying Cham 97, Cham 107, Bonafide, Cochise.

Ski and Bow rack has the Bonafides and Cochise's.............. Your other choice is Summit Ski Shop.............. both are great places w/ helpful staff! Enjoy! :)

If it gets deep and you're on the Cochise, ski them lively (bounce a lot) and carry speed and they wake up................. w/ Wolf Creek.......... tackle the hiking terrain............... totally worth it.............. if you're not in amazing shape............. HIT THE STAIRMASTER  now.....before you go............If there is heavy snow forecast..... check online w/ CO/DOT website @ 4am...........w/ Avy control you need to get through the gates really early  before they close the Hwy..............( leave Pagosa by 6 am and have breakfast up at the mtn cafeteria, rent a 4WD or w/ a car have Chains or snow tires)................ that means pick up your skis the night before or a day early............. if no snow forecast then no worries............ if you wish to totally avoid the Avy issues and road closures, stay in South Fork on the opposite side of the pass................ :)
