DH just went to buy skiis for 5 yo (we also have a 4 and 2 yo), saying it is a better deal than renting. he is taking 5 yo skiing tomorrow. it seems really wasteful, and WTF did...
we not get her skis for Christmas. this really bothers me and seems manic in a way. DH is normally very frugal and we have the money, but still, just going out to get them... FWIW I never had a pair of skis in my life because we couldn't afford it growing up. and never really went skiing. so I may have some issues there.
you have issues and i had them, too. it is cheaper to buy IF you are going to ski 5 or more times on those skis. we rent for kids each year for $180. New skis will be about $250?...(more)12-27-2011 4:10pm
When you buy a season pass and rent/buy for the season, skiing is actually no more expensive than the soccer programs or tai kwon do that kids do all winter.
