    Paradise for the outdoor enthusiast, but Man, their prices are no bueno. Also, be watch out w/ sales: their markdown is off MSRP; not list.

    Make sure your board/skis are waxed before you leave... And I don't get why their online reservation system doesn't let you specify goofy/normal or binding angles for your board.

    Rentals are well-priced, but get there with time to spare, even if you've reserved online.

    Got my indoor cycling shoes here because I knew they'd be nice enough to install the cleats for me. (You need the SPD ones - yes they're the mountain biking ones. It's weird I know.)

    There are two bathrooms but I like the 4th floor ones the best. Check the sales racks often as they turn the merchandise quickly.

    If you're flying to SF to ski Tahoe rent skis here - cheaper than either what you would pay the airline to bring them on the plane or what the ski areas charge. Also, they have lift ticket discounts. Read more
