I promised them I would give them a thumbs up, if I received everything ok, and today I did. So if you cannot find something at BC, just give them a call, and no I have absoultely nothing to do with their store.
The owner is a good guy, passionate about the ski business. Long before this was on-line, he was making a very good living buying new old stock equipment from the ski companies, running ski swaps, etc. and running a small retail ski business. This guy knows what he's doing. My hunch is that he's able to acquire good product at good prices, because of long-standing relationships.
Along with the Ski Depot, Al's is really a ski "shop" with business done on line. If you can live with year-old stuff, and visit his site regularly, you can do well. Then they'll help you from there.
I was skeptical when the business first started, but all that I hear is positive. I've bought from him and it's all been good.
You joined yesterday, and have 3 posts bumping ancient threads on Al's Ski Barn
[Edit: Mod asked me to retract my critiscism of shilling ]
One bump would have sufficed giving praise to Al's Ski Barn for their great service
Enjoy your time at Epic Ski.
Actually I bought a new pair of skis from them last week (Line Opus) and they did some incredibly good things for me. And yes I wanted to give them a splash of credit. If that's a bad thing in the cynical world of online marketing then I apologize.
