I just read that you're going to be working out at Crapper. Anyways swing into Mountain Sports Outlet in Silverthorne when you get out to Crapper. If you're there in mid Oct. We'll be having our insane sale on last years gear and this years stuff. I've got a ton of DH DFC's from last year that I think we'll be selling for around 280ish range (don't totally quote me on that just yet) some Gnu DK's, TRS's, T.Rices, etc. etc., The whole Nitro line up. Plus we carry Rome, K2, Ride, Unity, Burton, and I'm not exactly sure what else we've brought in for this up coming season.
Either way shopping with us you'll be able to cut that budget down, take the left over money and buy a 5 mountain pass so you can ride all over the county.
