Thanks.
While you're up there, check the rental shop and even their gear shop. Ask if either have any Flows you could possible demo.

I'm not familiar with their shop or rentals so I don't know what the outcome is going to be. Never hurts to ask.

...sorry to be the barer of bad news guy's, but they don't do demo's of SB gear at either Boyne resort. . Banhoeff's in Petoski might. Give em a call first.

But do they have rental gear? I know a lot of resorts carry Flow bindings for rentals (around America, not sure about MI). Even if that means you have to rent a board with the Flow bindings, at least you'd get to try it.

I believe the rental gear is all Burton.

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.

Again, worth a shot.

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?

Thanks this is something I never would have thought to do.

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.
