Camelback "Used Equipiment Sale"

i'm going to camelback tomorrow, and while i was looking at the rates i came across the link above. 

do they have skis and boots on sale for $75, or am i intepreting wrong? if that is the case, would it be worth it to buy them even if the boots were close to my size? i mean, it would just be like rental, except i pay double, and this time i get to keep the skis and boots.

Rental specific skis tend to have characteristics that make them undesirable for people looking to improve their skiing. But if it is just instead of renting those same skis for more money on multiple occasions, then sure. Rental boots - well, that's just crazy talk. I guess the one advantage of rental boots is that they are already packed out, so you might end up with a proper shell size.

For $75, you're not really risking a lot. But I wouldn't expect to use them more than a season if that, as you improve, you'll want better stuff pretty quickly. Also, you'll need to get the bindings set up for your boots (costs a few bucks unless they do that for you at time of sale) and you'll need to periodically get the skis waxed and tuned. I do understand the appeal of having your own equipment so the fit is predictable and you don't have to wait in rental lines, though.

By the way, I could make you a sweet deal on some beat-up 170cm Syntros and 26.5 Saltos

Kidding in terms of this making sense for you, among other reasons, because I'm four hours away from you. I also wouldn't actually recommend that anybody use this stuff, it's all way past its prime, such as it was.

I thought OP was saying someone was selling used models of the backpacks that people drink out
