David, great question. I think this will be some of the new norm coming from last season. From our perspecitve and talking to the product managers, this new way of testing will be a part of the new norm. IMHO, in many ways it is one of the big positives to come from last years season.If crisis is part danger, part opportunity (as I tend to feel), this necessary change in how you went about testing skis may have allowed for a better testing experience. A product rep shows up with skis that are in better shape because they haven't been skied all day by too many other people, and better tuned. You then get to test skis more likely to be prepped as they should, rather than writing off a ski due a poor tune. And maybe connect better with industry insiders than at a traditional industry show.
I wonder how much of the process of ski reviewing/previewing can incorporate some of this moving forward, rather than depend on a few large industry testing show and events.
