Is REI the best place in Chicago to look at skis/snowboards in person? Any other suggestions? There is a Burton flagship store. I know it’s the Midwest but curious

Viking Ski Shop at Fullerton is pretty good. You can give it a shot. REI is pretty standard, you can’t go wrong with them.

I’d order skis online and then get boots fitted at the mountain. Then if something is off they can help you while you’re there and most of those places have a warranty

Yeah makes sense. I know this isn’t like out west. I’m buying new gear so will probably do online and fitting in person

The Scandinavian Ski Shop is good too. The rates for boot molding are fantastic

Got both at Viking ski shop and have no regrets. Free fitting if you buy the boots in-store

Also went with Viking a few years ago.

Yea check out Viking in Logan!

You ever reply with a confirmation question, but then realize that confirmation probably wasn’t needed at all. But now you find yourself stuck because you’ve put into writing that there is an outstanding question and if you send the docs out, it will seem like you just sent them without waiting for a reply. Just me? Cool 😑

I’m really wanting to just quit my summer internship. I got placed in a location in the north east which I didn’t want to be in the first place.

I know it’s heavily discouraged to leave in the middle of the summer, but are there any options that I could potentially take?
