The possibilities are that:
1) The employee is a moron.

2) REI may have decided to not stock ski equipment in certain stores.
(Possibly in locales where the season is less than 6 weeks long ;-)

A quick check of their web site reveals a ton of skis (alpine, tele, XC),
bindings, boots, boards, waxes, helmets, and all sorts of other sundry
accessories. The same can be said of the SLC store.
