    Is it possible to buy skis in the summer time? Maybe in some online stores? How about producer's stores? And if you know where, so I'd like to hear where you usually buy your gears.

    Yes, it is very possible. Depending on where you live, check your local shops. A whole bunch of shops switch to patio furniture or something in the summer, but if you just ask someone who works there if you can look at the skis, they'll be more than happy to work with you. Not all shops will let you go back and look at their stock, but they might ask you what you're looking for, narrow it down, and go pull some skis for you to look at.

    Yes, you CAN get skis online, but - especially in the summertime - shops will give you just as good a deal as online dealers, if not better. In addition to that, you need to know exactly what you're looking at and what you should be looking for to buy online. I maintain you should go to your local shop though. Support those guys. The ski community can't lose our shops to the web.
