Once you step inside this store you think you're in the best place to buy ski/backpacking, etc. equipment. It's a beautiful well set out store; however, the sales staff are not the best at pointing you in the right direction for what you are looking for. The prices are quite a bit higher than other stores, and you're not necessarily getting better service. If you know exactly what you want, it might be a good place to go, otherwise, shop elsewhere.
