Hi Rich

I like the writeup, however I'm probably not the best person to validate
how it will sound to an outsider...

One things, though...

Sometimes I feel like this describes way too many actual ski shops (or
maybe not ski shops, but certainly other establishments)... I.e. I'm not
sure it is really that obvious of an absurdity as one would think; maybe
stating more explicitly what a ski shop 'ought' to do would help?
