Be prepared if heading off piste.

If heading off piste especially in Japan, and parts of USA and Europe, don't risk your life because you didn't spend a few dollars on safety equipment, and Avalung is cheap at around $115 and gives you around an extra 45 minutes of air if buried, and tracking beacon like the BCA tracker 2 is great value at around $300, it pays of course, to also have a shovel and probe to help in a rescue, and having this equipment is not a lot of good if you don't know how to use it when in an emergency situation,

The importance of ski demo days.

The importance of ski demo days.

I was recently asked to fill in a questionnaire about the importance to me of attending the USA snow sports industry (SIA) demo days held at Winter park Colorado at a huge expense to the SIA.
Some were saying it was a junket, others like me thought it was well worthwhile.
I have been going to these SIA demo days for 3 years now as I still sell a lot of skis both in my shop and online, I also get asked often what ski would suit a persons requirements,

It is not high profits but we can do it if we are prepared to lower the margins, and clear past seasons stock.
