"You can buy skis many places, but I don't think you can necessarily buy the right skis for you unless you have someone as knowledgeable and as dedicated as Rita to outfit you properly!
Rita offered Patrick and me phenomenal service. She asked us about our goals and abilities and came up with several skis/boots/bindings options for us. Patrick and I were able to try out different skis in different conditions and come back to Rita with questions before deciding upon the winning packages. Both Patrick and I have been very happy with our choices!" - Kathryn Heim, Winthrop WA
"Well, my new MSR Dragonfly is AWESOME! Thanks so much for the advice, Rita, used it the last 2 days in the hills and loved it. You were so right,,,," - Terry Karro,
