I would probably buy it online seeing how it is cheaper but then again I would look for an online place that would allow returns because some places don't allow that. Just incase something is wrong with the equipment.

I will do both but it is a good idea to make sure whever you buy takes returns as the sizing is real changeable.

If you are a beginner, I'd do this in person for the help and support. Online does offer better bargains, however.

I have doubts about buying online because you don't get to see the actual gear. If anything, I'd always go for real store buying.

Yep you got it, I have thought about that as well. Unless you are buying from a trusted store that you have always bought from and never had a problem with,then i think you should go right over to the local store and touch, feel and buy your gear.

When ever I buy Skiing equipment on eBay I always check Feedback first, I don't want to be scammed.

Ha I have been scammed a numerous amounts of times on Ebay. I didn't know the procedure at first but now I know. I can't believe how many people there are on there that are so fake.

It's not fun being scammed I swear, It's not something that any of us want to go through at all.
