Considering getting into the business again. - Page 2

post #31 of 34
Thread Starter 
Well the racing program at the local hils has all but died. While i was in middle school and high school they had races going on nearly every single weekend as well as leagues and training on week nights. Now they probably have a couple of weekends a season and with limited training for part of the winter. The emphasis now seems to be on the terrain park. I hate to see these changes happening but I guess its just what's "in" right now.

You want to bet on finding the 'exact same' ski in any given on-hill shop at a resort?

You want to be stuck in an off-hill rental shop on a powder day?

so why not just buy? This is Cincinnatti to out west. I would assume that's at least a week.

Maybe there's a niche for it. But if I was that hooked on that one specific ski, I'd just buy it instead of rent it for a week at roughly half the cost of a purchase. Or, at least have the opportunity to buy upon return or put that money towards another pair.

Maybe there are, but I can't believe there are people who require such specific skis for rental, yet are unwilling to buy.

Consider a third alternative- the season lease plan with exchange. Going

to Utah
to Mammoth
to Jay Peak
to Winter Park
touring
to race camp?

-no problem, just stop by.
