SessionA good ski shop should first and foremost have 2 things. At least one bootfitter. and I mean a REAL bootfitter that will spend hours with you getting you in just the right fit. And an amazing shop that can fix the most ridiculous base/edge damage.
Give me these 2 things and you have my business.
BrawnTrendsAdd knowledgeable employees in the sales/rental department, too. People who can give you proper advice if need be.
I remember going to a big ski shop in my home resort and asking (out of pure curiosity) what freestyle/park skis around 90mm they had for rent. The guy looked at me like I was a crazy fool and said "huhhhh... 90mm underfoot is considered freeride, not freestyle, buddy".
I left and never went back.
SKIER_STEVEAlso, sir thread creator. your Icon is the Armada Zero collection logo, so I'd guess, being a legit shop that has that limited product/brands is something important to you. It's a great drive to get customers in the shop, and off the web
SessionI guess. For me when it comes to equipment, I don't want to hear the floor monkey's opinion on what they think I should get. .
BrawnTrendsEven for boots?
