    I don't know anything about that shop, but will say you would learn some valuable equipment skills will earning a few dollars. You could also alert WRG when cougars are prowling the shop.

    ^^^ A ski tuning shop in Bozeman that is new and making its name is a chance to be in on the ground floor of what could be pretty cool. Good chance to make a lot of connections and be plied with beer and baked goods as well as an endless supply of Ridge Bettys. Get your hands on their feet and the rest of the body might follow.
    I have been in this State for 30 years and I am willing to admit that I am part of the problem.

    Chalet Sports seems like the most fun shop to work IMO. Great selection of gear, and also downtown.

    Bam. It's about time but the YC will just pull out the checkbook again and pay the problem away.

    I went by a few minutes ago and talked to Nick, one of the owners. He says they are fully staffed so a job is unlikely but it was cool to see the place. The amount of equipment they have in that little shop is pretty impressive.

    You didn't throw the "TGR card"? Explain to Nick your vast social media following that will bring in mags to his store and the social benefit work you will be doing aligning cougars and fit chicks with eligible local men.

    Go find the Gear Wizard and make friends with him. Heís got an impressive shop for its size, and always does a great job with my skis.

    The wiz also has (had?) the lowest priced mounts in town at around $40.

    Maybe heíll hire you.

    +1 for the wiz. Brian is awesome and my buddies Dan and Dick are top tier shop rats. They'll set you up right.

    Went by the wizard yesterday but whoever I talked to said they pare down employees to the bare minimum for winter season.

    I'm moving on from my STH2s and going with Pivots so am now in search of a Rossi/Look jig. Might have to go back by the Wizard and see if he'll let me borrow his jig for an evening. Total longshot but worth a try I guess.

    We did this for a week in Clarkston in an insulated school bus with a wood stove.

    It's Bozeman, not Canada.

    Chalet did all my mounts while I was in town. Not because they were better but because I could walk in with a pizza and a case from work and walk out with a pair of mounted skis. Every Monday night a few pizzas would go missing from the shop and a pickup bed would mysteriously fill with beer. I got a lot of the things I needed while 'going out back for a smoke' on that Monday shift.
