Sell 4 of the boards and spend more time out of Ontarible!!!
Totally agree actually. I know you started in Ontario and then got smart with the move to Alberta, so you know what you're talking about.

Actually, I rode a Salomon cambered for my beginner board and then moved up to a more advanced Salomon cambered (Salomon makes great cambered boards!) and Ride DH for the next few years. Used them on trips to Tremblant, Ste. Anne, Massif, Smuggler's Notch. Then the whole rocker thing hit, but no demos in Ontario aside from Burton.

Finally got out west to Whistler last year and demo'd a few Lib Techs and a Prior AMF. Well, you saw where I ended up. Love the R/C/R profiles. (Can you imagine if Never Summer had demos at Whistler? They missed out on some potential sales by not demoing.)

And this year, I was in your territory pouts - one week trip that saw me riding Kicking Horse/Louise/Sunshine/Norquay. Two weeks later I was in Colorado for a week riding Keystone/Vail/Breckenridge/A-basin. Hoping to do three trips out west next year.
Just wanted to let you know that while my weekend sojourns are on the speed bumps here, my Mervin quiver IS getting to more interesting terrain.

(I did say I expected abuse on my quiver didn't I??)
