I am heading to SLC soon and decided to call the shops at Alta to see what the deal was with demos. I started asking the young lady if they had Volkl ACs or Head IMs or Dynastar Contacts and there was dead silence on the other end of the line.
Then after a about 10 seconds of that she says "have you ever been here? we ski powder here!" Uh oh, pegged already! Apparently only tourists ask if they have the all mountain skis, LOL. She did rattle off a bunch of powder skis, none of which had a waist smaller than 110, that they demoed.
Geez do they really have powder ALL the time at Alta. I swear that is what she said. If so I am gonna need a whole day of lessons just to even make a short powder run never having skied any. Luckily they didn't have my name so I can act like I am onthe ball once I get there!
Will search for powder tips on the board but I have a feeling its one of those things you can only learn by doing.
