The shop that i work(ed) at is going out of business after 32 years. It's a major blower, but on the brightside, everthing in the store is on clearance. it's worth checking out.
the shop is the Ski Racquet in Olney, MD, about 40 minutes from downtown Baltimore and DC.
the website is
We stock Volkl, Solomon, Rossi, Technica, nordica, K2. Helly, Marker, Burton/ride/liquid outerwear, plus TONS of snowboards/bindings/boots. Also there is some skate stuff that will probably be pretty cheap.
The owner is the most knowledgeable ski tech i have ever talked to, so if you need any tuning, repairs, ANYTHING he can probably help you.
