If you're looking for "cheap" gear, check your local area high school ski team support groups. Many hold annual used equipment sales to raise funds for the teams and some good bargains can be found there. The problem is most are held earlier in a season, but I have heard of them being held after the holidays too. Other possibilities would be used rental gear from either a store or a ski area's rental shop, for-sale ads in the classifieds or on bulletin boards at community groceries and laundries.

Well, you've got lift tickets and transportation covered then. Who's going to be the "go-to" guy for equipment?

Yuki has hit it right on---e m p l o y m e n t and then save money for skiing, even if that means not spending on partying, cd's, dvd's, game cards and other non essentials. OOOh, cell phone charges are atleast one lift ticket a month.

rossifreerider-
Stop enabling him and maybe he will be able to stop spending on nonessentials and save for lift tickets. OOOh, a job, as in employment like Yuki posted, is also what most people do.

I got this great investment tip from a total stranger at the local supermarket. I was buying my yearly lottery ticket. This guy looks at me and says, " One lottery ticket? You can't win by buying only one lottery ticket. " He was right I didn't win by buying only one ticket.
