Update on Purchasing Equipment
The Outdoor Resource Center (BYU-I's "ORC") does not sell equipment, but Scott Hurst made me aware of some nearby consignment shops you should check out:
Victor Outdoor Seconds in Victor, Idaho
Headwall Recycle Sports in Jackson,Wyoming
Also, I've been told that Play it Again Sports in Idaho Falls sometimes has good nordic ski equipment.
Happy trails, and keep doing the snow dance!
