Yeah this is really sounding like the way to go. They do an avy course right at my local hill so that will be easy and several local stores have lots of equipment to check out. Plus there is lots of hikable terrain from my local hill. I am sure this idea will pay off in the next season or two for sure.

Yeah I know it's kind of ridiculous, but that's just what my dad has always done and just keeps on doing it. But yes I am very lucky.

I'll go take a look tomorrow for sure. We have a local dealer so I'll try them on for a good feel. Thanks for the advice.
