Basin ski has been a good choice used by several of my friends who frequent the area. On the access road. http://www.basinski.com.

Can't go wrong with northern ski works...huge demo selection-decent prices. Close to the entrance (on the left if your coming in from rte 4) of the access road.

Joe Jones in Rutland, not the closest, but the best prices.

The lodge at Snowshed also has a great selection, being on the mountain, has its pluses there.

I'm heading to the K (also demoing this season) w/o Feb 28, so I have been looking up this info recently...

Here's the rundown...

Northern Ski Works: Carries Atomic, K2, Rossi, Volkl, Dynastar, & Elan. Side note: Everyone I know buys our boots here. Hal is the best bootfitter on the mountain.

Basin Ski:
Carries Atomic, K2, Rossi, Salomon, & Head. See Brett Williamson... He'll put you in something right for you.

Peak Performance: Volkl, Dynastar, Fischer, Nordica (They used to carry K2, but it's not on their site this season...)

Forerunner: Salomon, Fischer, Volant.

Aspen East: Salomon, Volkl, K2, Nordica, Atomic, Dynastar

I spend at least 1 week at K each season, and thesse are the "big boys". There are some smaller shops, but I'm not too familiar with them...

As noted, Northern and Basin are probably the two best, but the others have merit, especially because of the ski brand selection AND EVEN the within brand selection... For example... You can get the same K2s or Rossis at Basin or Northern, but, even though they both carry Atomic, Basin has the Race skis and the entire Metron series, while Northern has the Supercross series and maybe a few Metrons...

Also to keep in mind, I know that at least some (maybe all) of these places will apply your demo cost to the purchase...

If you're already on the mountain and decide midday to demo skis, the Double Diamond shop at Snowshed was good. They'll charge you a cut rate if you demo just for the afternoon too.
