Dear Missions Board Shop,
As I wait for winter during these long summer months, I often long to ski. I began to think about my future in the sport, and whether I have any chance at becoming better known or maybe even a genuine "amateur" at the sport. I feel that it would be easier to achieve my goal if a there was a local shop, such as yours, that carried freestyle skis. I feel that, since Missions works all of the competitions at Birch, it would also be good from a business aspect. The purpose of this letter is just to put an idea in the back of your head that if you were to make skiing an aspect of your shop, you could greatly increase its interest in Fairbanks, increase your overall popularity and further the sport and the shop in our secluded town. I am not asking for you to go ahead and stock skis because that probably isn,’t the best financial decision at this point in time. but maybe partially sponsoring some skiers (not paying by any means, but maybe giving some shirts and letting it be known they ski for you), carrying some more brands of ski outerwear (that some boarders could also buy) and just adding skiing to the environment at your shop. Again, the point of this wasn’t to get you to be board, skate AND ski shop by next month, it is just to put an idea out there for the future. Any consideration on the topic would be fantastic.
Thank you so much!
