I will be skiing in GT from Dec 27-30th and JH from 31-1. Its 6 days of skiing total. I am coming from PA skiing and ski a line sick day 95 thats130-95-115 . My son skis a 4frnt Click thats 118-89-113. I never had to fly with my skis before so need to buy a ski bag. Planning on a soft double bag with wheels. Anyhow I know its early season but was thinking of just brining our boots and renting skis because maybe our skis aren't exactly POW skis lol. Renting skis for a week could run almost $700 for the two of us, I could buy two pair of used POW skis for that on ebay. So just thinking its early season and the skis we ski locally will be good enough and I should get the bag?
Also transportation is a little tricky, trying not to waste money. I can get a rental car from avis for $400 for the week, I am staying at GT for 5 nights and dont plan to use or need a car much, but then am staying in Jackson for a few days and plan on driving up to JH to ski for the day. Have thought about the bus but would still need to get from the Jackson Hole airport to GT and then GT to Jackson, then Jackson to JH for 2 days, and then back to the airport. The shuttle was $130 from the airport to GT, and taxi from Jackson to the airport was around $40. If I factor in all the other rides I need it doesnt seem cheaper then renting a camry from avis. Am I missing something that could make this much cheaper?
Thanks. I tried to post in the correct forum this time
