Consider renting if...
- You're far from home. By renting, you avoid the cost and nuisance of traveling with bulky gear, and you get to use the right equipment. For example, the wider skis often rented out west "are better suited for our conditions, so youre going to have more fun," says Kathy Karlovic of Porters Sports, in Truckee, California.
- You want to try something new. Many sports shops rent cutting-edge demo models.
