So i'm having a little dilemma at work and I have decided to come to NS for help, we'll see how helpful this actually is.
So heres the issue:
I work at Zumiez here in Washington and every year in January Zumiez holds an event at Keystone for it's employees that are in the top 1000 out of all 518 stores for sales. At this event all the brand owners such as Shepard Ferry (Obey) Nicky Diamond ( obvi Diamond supply) and many more, along with every pro rider that has anything to do with Zumiez like Torstien, Eric Koston, P-rod, Rob Dyrdeck, Ect. They also give out tons of free product and you get to ride at Keystone for free for 2 days. Well there is a very good chance I will be able to attend this year. Heres my issue, I ski. Now you all know Zumiez doesn't sell skis and when I said something to my manager about skiing at Keystone she said that I wouldn't be allowed and that I wouldn't even be able to get the Zumiez mountain pass if I brought my skis. When I asked why she said that because Zumiez doesn't sell skis it's not part of the culture. I see nothing wrong with me bringing my skis there. Part of me just wants to say fuck the system and bring my skis and try to get away with it and risk not being able to possible ride Keystone for free just to try and prove a point. The other part of me just wants to be able to ride at Keystone and decide to demo some sick ass boards while i'm there ( I can snowboard pretty well too). So do you think I should stick it to the man and bring my ski stuff or should I just say fuck it and snowboard for 2 days in my B-dog and FD pants?
Spark notes: Zumiez won't let me bring my skis to a free trip to Keystone because we don't sell skis and it's not part of the "culture".
