Where can I demo Blizzard Bonafide and Prophet 98 in South Tahoe?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi guys, sorry if it is a wrong forum,

I am 43yo, 170lbs, fairly fit, level 7-8. Currently have Salomon Lord and I think I outgrew them. 

Looking for a new pair of skis, so far narrowed it down to Blizzard Bonafide and Line Prophet 98. Very intrigued by everything I read about Bonafide, but a bit hesitant whether I am a skier enough for them. As a reference, just demoed Rossi Experience 88 and while liked them, they were a bit more work than I would prefer, especially when tired. 

Anyhow, wondering if anyone can recommend a demo shop in South Tahoe (or SF Bay Area) to try and compare Bonafide and Prophet 98. 

Thanks!

Heavenly Sports most likely has the Bonafides. I am not sure about the P98s.

powderhouse demo shop has a lot of shiny new 2013 skis for demo, including the bonafides (i've oogled them in person)

demo Shop is @ gondola base so you could go down and switch skis mid-day if you like.

 

List is here:

No p98s though

 

You can apply 2 days of the demo ski fees towards a purchase. $45/day for skis only +fees and taxes.  

 

Note that there still is a supply/demand issue with the bonafides.  They maybe running low on new bonafides to sell you.  For example, they already didn't have new 180s left. Only some of the other sizes   So if you don't decide promptly, your only purchase option maybe to buy the demo pair from them(granted it was brand new and unused as of 2weeks ago).

 

Prices are MAP, so same as anywhere else you'd get them.
