Ski outlet mall near frisco?

Anyone knows about an outlet mall near frisco or dillon with ski gear, or a cheat ski store around that area?

Hmmm...There are shops with ski gear all over the place. Early January is prime season though and it will be tough to get a deal. Christy's Sports is usually reasonable and there's one in Keystone, Dillon, and Copper. Sometimes you can get a good deal at Recycle Sports in Frisco in the shopping strip with Safeway, MiZuppa, and FoodHeads World Cafe (by the way, I would highly recommend stopping by Zuppa or Foodheads for a meal if you're in town and have time. High quality for a reasonable price). Mountain Sports Outlet might have a good deal but the service is marginal. Your best bet is probably the Pure sports outlet in the Silverthorne Outlet Stores. It partly depends on what you're looking for (ski equipment, snow clothes, etc.). If you need to rent ski gear, go to Columbine Ski and Sport in Dillon and tell them Derk sent you. Great people, great service, great deals. Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any more questions.

Thanks a lot, I am looking into buying snowboard boots they are expensive here in Florida its not even funny, so I guess ill look around and see if i find something reasonable, I really don't want to spend more than 100 for a comfortable pair, I am not an expert so I don't need nothing really expensive, just something that would work nice on my feet.

Thanks again this is plenty help.

Plan to spend a minimum of $150 for your boots. Maybe $200. That's just what decent snowboard boots cost. Tell you what: a broken ankle costs a lot more than the $50 to $100 savings!

Also, plan to take an extra hour at the shop to have your boots heat molded (if applicable). It's worth it.

I have tried lots of boots and have kinda settled on 32's as being the most rugged, comfortable and light that fit my fat, wide, flat feet. Your experience may differ.

If you have a high-limit credit card, you could try buying 4 or 5 pairs of boots online, try them on and return all but your favorite.

Flakes are flying out here. We're getting pretty amped for the season.

Wilderness Sports has a second hand shop Right across the lot from Office Max in Silverthorne. They have great selection of ski and mountaineering gear along with camping gear, no snowboarding. MSO is a tourist trap and there customer service sucks. Check the swap on summitdaily.com, there is gear for sale by locals all the time.

Once again thank for all the help, well after some thinking I decided to go to only local store and try all their boots and see what fit the best, since I am in Ft. Lauderdale I pretty much had the store for myself its a big place, I spend like 2 hours, and finally decided that the Burton moto size 11 fit the best out of all the ones i tried, my friend opted for Salomon synbio, he claimed those had the best fit, plus both pairs where reasonably priced. I don't know why cause this store has outrageous prices but somehow this boots where not bad, I am very happy with them, cant wait to try them up on the slopes.

I felt bad for the sales acosiate she was so nice, but between the 2 of us we must of tried 15 pairs or so, tried different brands, forum, dc, burtons, nitro, salomon, k2(they were my second choice).

Total bill was 286 not bad compared to internet prices, I know if I shopped around on the ebay I could get like 50 off the whole package but its a pain in the butt, late shipping ect.

gapers, let me guess. Someone finally told you what a gaper was. You thought is was so incredibly clever that made it your screen name and never miss a chance to use it. Oh, and you don't consider yourself a gaper even though you were born in Ohio.
