Whether you've just started skiing or you've been tearing up the slopes for years, you may be asking yourself, "Should I continue to rent ski equipment, or is it finally time to buy my own?" Good question. There are plenty of advantages to both.
One of the first things to consider before buying new equipment is how many times you expect to ski this season. You're probably better off renting equipment if the answer is fewer than 10 days. Beginners rental packages that include skis, boots, and poles start as low as $25 a day and rarely cost more than $50, even for expensive performance or demo skis. You could rent all your gear for about $175 if you're only going to ski one week this season.
