How to buy the right set of skis
Tired of waiting in long ski rental lines and paying for a mediocre set of used skis? Maybe now is the time that you should consider making the investment into buying your own pair of skis. This decision could run you between $800-$2000 for a good pair of skis, and then added expenses for boots, bindings, poles, and other important accessories. However, the payoffs of having comfortable, fitting, top-notch skis that put you on the slopes right after attaching the lift ticket to your jacket are well-worth it. If you have a good ski store near you, then you are in luck and can usually get very good service and learn about the large variety of brands, prices, and sizes. However, if you do not have a ski store near you, it may be beneficial to research various skis and ski equipment on the web.
How to buy skis is a good website for the buyer that has no previous knowledge of the different kinds of skis and what they should be looking for. In addition, the site also gives you help on what to look for in purchasing boots and poles as well. For the more intermediate skiers that know the type of ski equipment they want, Ski Magazine is a great resource that lets you search by brand and gives you many articles on tips for buying. The site also has lists of the best gear and other useful articles for the intermediate skiers.
