If your present skis are no good perhaps consider a seasonal rental so you can use this season to demo.
With Boyne Country Sports having bought out Bavarian Village, they write the largest ski orders of anyone in the State of Michigan, with the possible exception of Sports Authority, and frankly their offerings are extremely limited.
I would check out the costs of testing skis at Boyne Mountain or the Highlands. Nubs Knob also has a fairly extensive demo program. Usually the costs to demo is applied to the cost of new your skis. The guys at The Sq. Lake and Woodward Boyne Country Sports told me you can apply as many demo days as you like toward your purchase of skis.
So bottome line, I would demo first,and I think there are some decent opportunites to do so, with a little commitment from you.
Based on your testing experiences you will probably have a pretty good idea of what you want to own. When the price is right, either this spring or late August 2002, make your best deal....
And then you will be enjoying some Happy Skiing !
