I have one more option for you...
PM WiredSports on here. They usually have demo equipment. Ask them if its possible for them send you a pair and in return, you'll purchase through them if you like it.
Thanks this is something I never would have thought to do.
For interested parties; Caberfae is doing $9 lift tickets and rentals this Friday with their web coupon
See how nice I am, trying to help you punks when I can't get out there myself?
I have tomorrow off from work and would love to go but I have to watch my twin 2-year-olds. I can't wait until they can go with me. It's just as well though, I've decided to take this weekend off anyways to let my groin injury rest up an extra week for our trip to Highlands next week. It's so hard not to go though, especially with all the snow they're getting on the west side and up north.
