Location: Finally stopping that crazy suffering that is ice, climbing to concentrate on great ski tours!, .
Interest: Anything that can drag me to the mountains. Backpacking is #1, followed by climbing, dayhiking and camping with family.
Hummers, snowmobiles, quads and chainsaws.
(If MEC thought the members wanted them, would we?)
Seriously, I think they should pick up the Hilleberg line for Canada. They could go with the very successful model they use with Western Mountaineering, and have the majority of the sales through special order.
I think they should look for cool, cutting edge niche brands like that and find ways to carry them without going broke stocking all the stores with it.
