Sorry to post another thread on this discussion but I want to make sure my analysis isn't Craaaazzzy.
Facts: I have two daughters (6 and almost 4). The 6 year old has skied for past two seasons (5-9 days each season). The 4 year old went sking last year for first time and loved it. She skied about 4 days. We live about 3 hours from closest ski hill in South Dakota. We plan on skiing 5-10 days with kids this season. The daily rental for kids is $22 per day. Last year I purchased new 90 cm skis and 18.5 boots for 6 (5 year old last year) for $165 all in. She will use the 90 cm skis this year again. I have the following offer.
I can purchase a pair of new 80 cm and 17 boots for almost 4 year old for $145 all in. I can purchase a pair of new 19-22 Roce boots for 6 year old for $90. The 6 year old will stay on 90 cm. All in for all gear, including last year will be $410.
I figure the 4 year old will be set for next 3 seasons (17 boot, 18.5 boot and 19-22 boot: 80 cm and 90 cm skis)
I figure the 6 year old will be set for next 2/3 seasons on boot (19-22 boot) and good for 1 season on 90 cm ski. I will need to get 100+ cm ski for her next year.
I can do most waxing and what not but probably have some tuning done by ski shop. Am I missing something or is this a no brainer? Thanks in advance for any comments.
