ok i'll start...was out today....wasn't looking to shop either, instead was on my way through a mall to to reach a trail where I'd start a long walk along West Vancouver's lovely Ambleside area.
just as the saying goes ''when you expect you don't get; and when you don't expect you often get'' I came across a retailer sportcheck and their boxing day sales..
For the heck of it, I decide to step in and look around ... right in front of me are their skis on sale... I spot their 2 main door crasher skis on sale: one being the Rossi SC80.
Right beside the Rossi SC80 are pairs of the other door crasher skis being offered, namely, the 2009-2010 Atomic Blackeye Ti ...all inventory is brand new, unused ...I pulled the trigger on the blackeyes...altogther they came with atomic 110 bindings that got mounted, including calibration with my boots (weight,skill level, etc), all in for a smoking deal of $380! (taxes included) .
I have always wanted a good groomer ski for my local mtn (Cypress mtn here in the PNW) to compliment my Dynastar Mythic Riders for those icier night time runs and/or very hardpack ''groomer only'' days.., despite what we all caution on her, namely, 'Don't buy before you try' I rationalized for that price even if I don't like 'em then I'm sure I can easily unload them for exactly what I paid, so no $$ loss....heck could even use them this season and sell them at $380 no doubt.
so what did any of you also score (expected or not) this season so far?
