I am considering buying my first pair of skis! Do you have any suggestions? What about yourself, do you rent/hire or own a pair?

Chris,

You could try looking in the ski directory http://www.beforeyouski.com/ under "Skis", there are some useful sites there and if you find any more why not add them!

Michael

I usually rent - I find it to be a lot more practical, although it probably works out to be more expensive in the long run. Still well worth it in my opinion.

I used to have my own pair of skies but when I went up to Colorado during one Winter break, I did a really bad landing and land on my right ski wrong and cracked the tip of it. So I just rent them from now on since I only go up there once a year which is during the winter.

Rental's the best way to go. Get rental insurance, and rent em out, best thing to do. They're tried and tested too, what more could you want?

I rent, as I don't ski very often.

Up until this year I rented. It was easy and relatively convenient to just pick them up before skiing and drop them off after. No maintenance to deal with and no need to have a ski rack or anything on the car as I rented them right on the mountain as opposed to renting them in town and toting them up the hill.

This year I bought my own skis because I am planning on skiing more often and it just made good sense financially. Of course now I have to learn about maintenance and all that stuff, but that is why I am on this forum!

I have Rossignol skis with Salomon bindings. I got them plus my Salomon boots at a flea market for 20 bucks
