I have a friend who works at Vail as a lifty. He said a lot of the local shops are throwing RIDICULOUS deals at them for last years helmets. Like over 50% off. He got a Giro Omen for $90. I paid almost $200 for mine. I think the shops are definitely aiming for some loyalty on this one, but it's awesome that they recognize that helmets are pretty expensive for them.
more like shops are sweating with all the overstock that they are carrying into the summer.
