Going skiiing in colorado in Spring - Havent skiied in awhile and not sure about gear

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Havent been skiing in a long time - but a few buddies and I are going to Breckenridge in the spring.  I have an older set of skiis, bindings and boots.  Should I just rent out there or bring these (see images below)?  I am not sure what the new technology is and I was an average skier when I used to ski.  Suggestions?

How well the boots fit is the most important criteria. Rental boots are the weakest link in the chain.

I have these technica boots - Are they worth to bring them on my trip?

If the boots fit well take them but buckle the cuffs even when in storage.

has technology changed for skiis that any skiis that I rent would be better than my skiis?  And my boots should be able to work with any skiis?

You aren't getting very useful replies here.  Old Volkl Carvers are not your best choice for Breckenridge in the spring, to some extent depending on when in the spring, what conditions are like then, and what type of terrain you plan/hope to ski.  Most modern premium ski rentals (called 'demos') will be better than those; leave your poles at home as well.  Boots are a different issue.  Those Tecnica TC1 boots are from 1991 and they also suck by modern standards. But fit and function trumps everything, and if those still fit well and the toes and heels aren't too worn down, they could work OK. So, you should bring your boots and maybe use them, but rent new skis and poles.

 

Have a great trip!
