I've been a downhill skier since I was 3 years old...recently I moved back to my home state of Michigan but I moved up north. So our ski hills are small at least I moved literally to a ski resort. Since I get to ski more often I got new boot and skis last year! Awesome. This year I really want to try telemarking... how does one tell the wife he just purchased new boots and expensive bindings again...??? (She'll be mad for a short time, I'll be happy later and longer!)
Anyone one else have a good story about equipment purchases that you may not have needed and you didn't tell your significant other about?
