I've been checking craigslist and missed out on a couple smoking deals last week.
There was even one on ebay w/in an hour from my house that I would've won (it went for less than I was willing to pay), but of course my network bit the dust during the last two hours of the auction. It cruelly started working about 15mins after the auction ended, just to let me know.
I don't mind paying the shipping (usually around $70.00), if someone's got one for the right price.
I've got one now, but it sustained a decent size crack in the lid during summer storage...I siliconed/glued it up, but I'm fairly sure it's not going to survive the 3 hours to Hood, and I'm not willing to risk my skis.
I'll probably end up getting the one on sale at the Sports Authority.
I just really, really hate the idea of putting on the regular racks, which I also have, and putting binding covers on...I'm probably going to have to do it at least once because I'm skiing Timberline this Sat/Sun because it's dumping and the whole mountain is opening on Thursday.
