3 – Buying Gear Online & Kirk Drops a Racer
We are partial to buying ski and snowboard equipment in your local shop. But sometimes online shopping for ski and snowboard gear just makes sense.

Here’s the basic idea. Find stuff at the sites listed below. Cross references buyers guide reviews by year of gear at powder.com, skimag.com/gear, backcountrymagazine.com
