Oberson, the biggest ski store in Quebec has invested in the amazing Wintersteiger machine – there are only three in North America. You no longer have to worry if you waited for the last minute to get your skis tuned up. From October thru April, there are “no-wait” tune-ups ($34.95, $49.95).
While you are there, you can find snowboard packages as low as $199 95, and ski & bindings packages can be $329.95. Many brands of ski wear (Descente, Karbon, Phenix, Spyder, Bonfire, Orage) from last year’s collections and ends-of-lines are here too. The other side of the store offers this season’s goods at this season’s prices.
In the Spring there’ streetwear (Roxy, Quiksilver, Rusty) and in-line skates (Rollerblade, K2, Reebok, as low as $59.99), soccer stuff (Adidas, Lotto, Umbro, Puma) and bikes. At the end of the summer is the big sale on skis.
