Welcome to our new beta design! Click here to go back to the old Newschoolers.
My friend really likes the usoutdoor store....but they are always tards with me. I called them last week about boot fitting and binding mounting, I won't even get into the conversation about the boot fitting but when I asked whether they could mount my 4frnt/vist bindings the guy on the phone says:
"yeah sure no problem"
me: "are you sure about that?"
shopguy: "yeah, why would that be a problem?"
me: "well, when I called last spring to see if your shop would mount my 4frnts they said they couldnt because they didn't have the jig"
shopguy: "i'm sure it's no problem, go ahead and bring your skis in"
me: "well if you don't have the jig I don't think you guys will mount them by hand for me"
shopguy: "you want to talk to the tech?"
me: "yes, definitely"
techguy: "hey man, whats up?"
me: "can you guys mount my 4frnt bindings?"
techguy: "nope, we don't have the jig for those"
me: " thanks man, just wanted to check"
I recommend Hillcrest ski and sport out in gresham, conveniently located on the way to the mountain from portland.
And like the tech guy at Hillcrest says about usoutdoor and others: "they need to grow a sack"
make sure you mark your skis, no shop in hood river can mount skis properly without them being marked
make sure to mark the graphics so that they line up
