Gearing Up: Doc Offers Ski and Board Sale Shopping Advice
If it happens on snow you can bet Tom Hackett has tried it.
An orthopedic surgeon with Vail's Steadman Clinic Hackett also serves as physician for the U.S. Snowboard Team and the U.S. Ski Team and consultant to the Colorado Rockies.
It follows that the doctor is himself an athlete. Yes he skis and snowboards but Hackett also just completed a swim of the English Channel sharks and all.
So while Labor Day sales of all kinds unfold throughout the retail industry Hackett is well-positioned to offer some basic tips for the local snow-sports enthusiasts who pack this holiday's annual equipment sales such as Sniagrab at Sports Authority Ski Rex at Colorado Ski & Golf and Powder Daze at Christy Sports.
