We are going out on a limb and have booked 17 days in Canada 21/22 season. I know it’s flat but everyone in the crew likes sun peaks, so that’s where we are headed. Our kids will be 15, 14 and 12 at that stage. looking at the numbers for long term rental, it seems to come out about $600 per kid for that time period. Coming from Qld, we only ski once a year with the family. At this point does it get more economical to buy a full package for each child ? Is it possible to get reasonable kit for a youth for that price that will last for a couple of seasons factoring growth? Are we better off buying skis and renting boots until they have passed the growth spurt? I guess @CarveMan would have the best idea as an industry insider. what have others done?
