yeah ben is a real chill guy - super nice and helpful. other employees on the freeride side are good too. ive gotten some not so great vibes from who seemed like the owner of the rest of basin sports though - was with a friend who was looking for bindings. the man tried to sell me bindings when i kept telling him i didn't need any. he didn't know what he was talking about technology wise either and yet somehow managed to sell bindings that were overpriced by $50 to my idiot friend.
so.. lss, evolution freeride is good, but the overall shop im not so hot on. proctor jones is also another one of my favorites.
It's a race shop and my last pair of skis came for the moment webshit and they were very intrigued with them i nthe shop. It's Stan and Dan's in North COnway, NH, they have one a shit load of ski mag awards,and Stan and Dan do actually work there.
The Ski Rack in Burlington. Found best in New England by the SIA themselves.
Style. Style is the answer to everything, a fresh way to approach a dull or dangerous thing. To do a dangerous thing with style is what I call art, style is the difference, a way of doing, a way of being done.
I used to love that shop. then I went in there over christmas break and they guy was a tool. I went in to get my heel piece remounted with heli-coils. the guy told me that not only did they need my boot (even though I could tell him the exact bsl of my boot), but that even with my boot it would cost me 40 fucking dollars for one heel piece to be remounted. then I went back there to see if they had picture this to get for my cousin as a Christmas gift and this was on dec. 23rd or so and some girl working there was like "oh, we haven't got any movies in yet."
get real summit, you used to be chill but now you're just another terrible shop that could care less about your customers.
oh and the ski and binding I wanted remounted were both purchased from and mounted by them.
clownschool, get learned.
"Just becuase you can have babies doesn't mean you should. I have a snowblower, but I dont use it in July."
Yup. agreed. this is one of the best shops around bruce does a great job keeping in touch with freestyle skiing and he knows what we want. the shop is awesome and fattys always sponsors tons of stuff at sundown (our local mtn) and theres a sick rail jam every year. plus the shop smells really good so whenever i get something from them once i'm home i smell it and its awesome....
yeah, all you got to do is just claim it harder and you should get it. - NSPC
you're price is way too high. there's sessions on sac all the time, no way you can get $0 for them on here take your sac flipping elsewhere. - ironXcross
Golf and Ski Warehouse is super sick. I went there and they had SOO many choice for skis and boots and everythign. They jsut had loads of freestyle stuff, oh yeah they started carrying ec headwear beanies! so dope
My favourite shop ever is Aerobics First (A1 Boardshop) in Halifax, Nova Scotia. It's a really good shop, friendly, and very well informed. I am pretty sure Craig is heading to SIA this year, and he runs ordering for the skis and snowboards. He really knows his shit when it comes to twins.

Oh I get it. Sorry to ruin your day.
"You put on your boots, click into your bindings, dust the snow off your skis, and head out for the chair, and it doesn't matter that you failed a test, didn't get the girl, or that your life is on a one way trip down the shitter, your world is right for the next couple of hours."
On PEI, the only real ski shop is Sporting Intentions, in Charlottetown, and they definitely could benefit from a newer brand, I have heard rumours that Outer Limits sports in Stratford, PEI is interested in bringing in some ski brands. George's Ski World (Steady Brook, Newfoundland) is a good shop and the only one I know of that sells skis in Western Newfoundland.
