I would be abit nervous about going out without boots or reservations though, and aren't the mountain shops more expensive anyway?
We run everything 10% off from the day it comes in to our shop, then we do price changes dependent on whats hot and whats not, then lower the prices right after X mas. We're the biggest and best shop in Summit County CO. You pay for what you get and if you have Johnny Bro Bra telling you how sick something is because his buddy uses it, chances are he hardly rides.
Here's all you need to know about finding a good shop to find boots in.
Ask them what length snowboard would be good for you, if they say it has to be between your chin or nose, or that its all based on your height. They are fucking idiots.
