Purchasing the Right Equipment
GEARING UP: TO RENT OR TO BUY?
Skiing can be a lifetime sport. We’ve already spoken at length about how important it is to have equipment custom chosen and sized exactly for you. So when is it time to shell out the cash for a brand new setup of your own?
First, we have some basic questions for you:
How often will you use this equipment?
Is it possible the equipment will be outgrown, either by a child or by a person’s progress in the snow?
Are you willing to pay for the right equipment for you?
If purchasing from eBay, craigslist or another used equipment location, make sure to get as much information as you can and check it out before you commit if possible. Be willing to resell or return if it isn’t the right size. Ultimately, you want to feel comfortable, happy and safe with your gear.
Understanding these options before you make the decision to rent, borrow or buy is crucial to your satisfaction and enjoyment. Now get out there and have fun!
