August 29, 2003, Quiver recon to SkiBonkers
« on: 08/29/03, 10:52 AM »

Well folks, it's no K2 outlet. The really good deals just aren't there. There weren't that many skis of particular interest to BC enthusiasts. Some weird K2 sticks like the Seth Pistol and Enemy for OK prices. Those funny K2 approach skis with attached skins for about 200$ (but hell, who needs those?) They had a good selection of Atomics but not too many of the really fat ones. It might be worth going there if you need ancillary gear like helmets. But on the other hand it's really too crowded to take your time and fit things carefully.
There's basically no true AT or tele gear there, it's all about the lift service crowd. No surprise there. But I was hoping they might at least have some crossovers, like AK Launchers or those big Fischer skis.
For those still interested, it's in a big parking lot just south of Northgate.
On a related note I had a look at the 'other' K2 outlet in Centralia last week and that was pretty underwhelming too.

Yep no killer deals,  the only stuff that looked interesting were the stack of '04 K2 Public Enemy's at $299  Also there we a few of pairs of Line Mothership's , but at close to $400,  for that kind of dough why not just buy are pair of Carbon Surfs direct from Voile for $425.
