Since I've been out of commission this week due to sickness, I may get out on Monday (probably at the Basin). Will you have internet access on Sunday night? I'll PM you on Sunday afternoon/evening to confirm.
|Also, I don't want to travel with skis (plus my quiver is somewhat one-dimensional of slalom and GS skis), recommendations on a place I can demo skis-- maybe something wider than 63mm underfoot?
You can try Green Mountain Sports
in Lakewood (closed on Sundays) -- Marshal Olson (of TGR) works there and can hook you up with some fatties (Bros, Moment, etc. Probably should call first).
Otherwise up here in Summit County, you can hit up Christy Sports (just past the OfficeMax in Dillon) or Sports Authority (next to City Market, also in Dillon). I know you can demo Mantras and Gotamas from SA. While Virgin Island Ski Rental is very cheap, their skis aren't always in the best shape, and their fat ski selection is a bit thin (fattest skis they have are the Mythic Riders -- not sure how fat you want to go).
