Ok. My wife and I have old skis. 10 years or more. Still happy with them. Kids have seasonal rentals. I am wondering what the difference in travelling with skis is (airline fees) versus renting once we get there. We are going from NJ to Sun Valley (and will likely hit a smaller resort or two while out there).
On the one hand, I like my stuff and figure it is probably nominally cheaper. OTOH, it may not be much less and it could be a fun way to try out a new toy.
