Score! Got some skis.

Labor Day weekend doesn't mean SNIAGRAB in JH, but it does mean ski sales at all the shops.

So I'm wandering through Teton Village this afternoon checking out all the shops when what should I espy? The very same pair of Head I C 200's that I demoed and loved last January... ( http://forums.epicski.com/showthread.php?t=12170

This pair is 177cm, barely touched, with the Tyrolia RailFlex-whatever-whatever binders.

Me: How much?

Shop guy: $300.

Me: Aw, come on. Head isn't making them this year. They're antiques.

Shop guy: How about $250?

Me: Sold.

I'm all goose-bumpy remembering how much I liked them. Not only that, but there's a lot of new snow at the high elevations this afternoon.

Winter's comin'.

NE1; if you see this, fear not. Getting these so cheap makes me more inclined to think positively about your deal.

Great ski and a great deal to boot. How do ya beat that? I demoed these skis myself and could never find the right deal to make me pull the trigger. You'll have a blast on these skis for sure.

ps. You know you're a true ski nut when you've been skiing forever and still get giddy over new sticks.

Okay, that's fair. Here's your profile listing:

Ski Equipment:
Icon Carbon, Intuitiv 74, Atomic 9.16, AK Enemy, Tianzu white yak

I'm on the Icon that is not the Carbon, but I've pimped Technica for the last five years.

Intuitive 74. I've skied it, loved it, woulda bought it for my all-mountain-in-resort-backcountry setup if it hadn't had that integral plate arrangement that somebody told me I couldn't mount Fritschi's on.

Atomic 9.16. I've skied it, loved it, bought my wife a pair because I couldn't find as good a deal in my size.

AK Enemy. Haven't skied it, but I'm personally boycotting K2 forever because they dumped sponsorship of the Mahre brothers. : It's a political thing for me.

Never been on a white yak but I'd sure love to give one a try.
