    Pretty much the dynamic at most ski shops I’ve visited I suppose. The guys working there are typically late 20s core brahs who are, like, experts in all things mountaineering with their 5-6 years of practice.

    ‘We’ll need to size your foot’ ( yeah and tell me to buy a full size smaller than I know after owning 10-12 differ boots will fit me’

    ‘You can’t ski real stuff in those boots’. ( yeah tell me how I couldnt ski 14ers 25 years ago in Asolo low top boots and Riva cable bindings like I did)

    I wonder if Yo Yo Ma gets a lecture from the 20 something music store employees when he stops buy to buys some strings?

    I wonder why I typically buy online anymore?

They're serious, not over sales-y and will go find an expert if they don't know a particular area the best. They have a rewards program. Have good end of season sales. Do good ski and boot work. Overall a great resource in Boulder where only real general outdoor alternative is REI (and kinda Moosejaw I guess).
    Oh and I'll also put in a positive plug for the Boulder Sports Recycler, also under fairly new ownership. Used stuff, so selection on specifics is always hit or miss, but get good stuff in and prices are generally good. The trick is finding it tucked among the north Boulder warehouses.

    My buddy starts asking some questions of the employee about some guitars and is promptly told he is flat out wrong on a number of issues. Treated like a total jong nubie. It was incredible. It went on and on until another employee happened over, recognized my friend, and immediately lost his shit.

    After some autographs we left. The amount of attitude this first sales guy showed was incredible.

    So yes, Yo Yo Ma would get the lecture. I saw it.
    That's classic. And not surprising at all.

    It is simply shocking and sheer travesty that a sub 1000 post m-handle being is allowed to post on TGR. They're really need to figure out a way to lock any new folks out. F-ing bullshit... BTW, can sarcastic remarks get you banned from TGR?

    Not at all, they are in fact encouraged.
    We're just perplexed by your 2009 join dated conjoined with your M-series moniker which seemed to an strange auto-naming feature that was rampant last year.

    Ok fair! And sorry. So to maybe help with the confusion... I joined in '09, posted a decent bit for a number of years, then went dormant for a few years, then went to re-join but my username/pword didn't work which turned into a long back-and-forth with TGR which was eventually resolved with a new generic "m" username they gave me which also re-set my post count, but somehow kept my original join month/year. My original name was (I thought) dsr80304 but a quick search on that doesn't bring anything up... So who knows? I just started over and occasionally post. Kinda odd I agree.
