January 13, 2011 was Tramdock.comís last day. Backcountry.comís ski-only ODAT (one-deal-at-a-time) site went dark at 7 am MST. Thereís no need for skiers to freak, though, because huge deals on all things ski will now be up for grabs on the original ODAT site for outdoor gear, SteepandCheap.com.
Tramdock.com had been around a while. The store was launched in 2005 as an online ski shop for hopelessly devoted skiers in search of all the in-bounds burliness, buttery jib-lets, backcountry asceticism, and anything in between. In late 2008, after Backcountry.com witnessed the huge popularity of its one-deal-at-a-time sites, SteepandCheap.com and WhiskeyMilitia.com, Tramdock was transformed, born again as the skiersí version of ODAT, featuring an endless storm of ridiculous deals on planks, boots, and ski-specific gear. Now, all's quiet at Tramdock.com, but if you listen carefully, you really can still hear the haunting sound of the faint shush of powder.
