    What would you like to see in a ski shop?

    What would you add to your dream shop that shops near you do not specialize in or carry the gear for?

    high pressure boot salesmen who are too lazy or inept to check the shell size without the liner.

    high performance boots in sasquatch sizes, not too much to ask for, is it?

    Tiny sizes too, we're not all of sasquatch proportions! You wouldn't believe how hard it is to try on a number of boots in say a 24.5 or a 25...

    Quick-Fix shop bench out front with just the essentials. Dime bag vending machine wouldn't hurt either.

    A full line of splitboard gear. Different boards, different brands, people who don't try to sell me on hardboots to go with my splitboard (FUCK THAT).

    And

    I have never been in ski/board/backcountry shop that carries more than one brand of split, and it is usually Voile, although one local shop carried Venture this year.

    for those that said bigger boot sizes, we were planning on up to 30.5

    Splitboard comments noted.

    And we'll work on the hot skier chicks thing with close attention. Of course.

    BIGGER please, and make DAMNED sure they are INDEED high performance boots you will be carrying. You WILL corner the market if you can find a good source of HP boots in both monster and mini sizes.
