I have a pair of slightly used skis that are several years old and have not been used for several years (since I moved to the tropics and had an inflexible schedule). I now have a chance to go skiing in Japan. Should I use these old skis (after bringing them to a shop in Japan) or rent? Bringing would be cheaper.
I am a skilled but not aggressive skier who will be skiing with novice and intermediates. I don't need anything fancy or performance. Just safe and serviceable. But I've never let skis sit for so long without being used.
