But if you call them (Ski-Depot), you will get great service. Their prices are hard to beat and their servce is top notch. Ski-Depot is a true B&M, not an internet storefront. They just happen to sell on the internet also and so perhaps they don't spend as much time online as the stores that do internet-only sales.
I visited Al's when they had a shop in Freeport, ME. Great guys there, always willing to offer advice and find great deals for cheapskates like me.
You can't go wrong with either one of these outfits. The raves for Dawg and SJ on this forum also speak volumes.
