To rent or not to rent, that is the question.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm headed to copper on the 22nd of March for a week of skiing (I'm a Colorado / west ski virgin). East coast ski shops will talk up the difference between skis appropriate for east coast skiing (Pennsylvania and vt) compared to west coast. I have 2 year old volkyl kendos. 89 under foot, 183 cm. I'm under the assumption that these all mnt skis will handle most, if not all copper can throw at me. I primarily love speed on groomers, but I will be hitting the bowls, and hopefully some glades as well. I would appreciate feedback on whether I showed demo at copper or take my own skis. Also, does anyone have an opinion on whether there really is a difference between east coast and west skiing (other than the ice we experience on the east coast (especially pa).

Bring the Kendos if it's not too much of a hassle. If you happen to luck out and get powder you can hit the rental shop for something more appropriate.

X2, that's what I would do. if  I was you.

 

If you might get a deep powder day plan ahead and rent early before the selection gets picked over.
