I'll chime in with good and bad. First off, I know it's hard to run a business in boulder due to higher overhead, etc. that seems to explain alot of it to me, as I would say across the board the prices are higher on new items. I appreciate the gear swaps, that's a plus.
I am a deal whore, if someone will cut me some slack I'm way more friendly toward the idea, even if it may be small. Last year I bought my lowfat skins there because the guy on the floor had the autonomy to decide on the spot to give me a deal. basically matched REI's price on the 100mm for 110mm's, and then allowed me to change out the rubber tip hooks (as what kind of ski needs 110mm skins and has a really sharp narrow pointy tip?!?!?) this kind of recognition of the details really pleased me and keeps me coming back.
the demo days on boulder creek will do wonders for your shop, getting in a new boat is dangerous to the wallet, and getting to try them for free makes it that much easier to get the jones on!!
best of luck you guys!!
