    Now if you're debating if say a mogul specific ski will be able to handle a decent powder day in the trees as well as it can a firm bump run, then the need to demo is likely greater
    Agreed. After thinking about it, it turns out I've never demoed any of the skis I've owned. Lol

    Demos are where it's at. You would be surprised how slight differences in a ski make a huge difference. Plus, in most cases anyway, you will be speaking with a more knowledgeable rep if it's a demo day.

    Turns out the setup I selected is better than I expected. And all without a demo! Whoot!
