I am sure you’ve heard it all before, “These boots are great for wearing all day while carving on the blissful corduroy” or “This is the best all-mountain ski in the category. This ski/snowboard kills the crud, holds an edge on hard pack and can float like vanilla ice-cream in root-beer.”

Having been in the snow-sports industry for nearly two decades and a stint as a sales associate for a major ski manufacturer, I read those reviews and implicitly have a couple questions:

GA_googleAddSlot("ca-pub-4956332358238235", "west-seattle_story_text_region_slot_1");GA_googleFillSlot("west-seattle_story_text_region_slot_1");
