So, over the xmas / new-year break we finally got around to going for some skiing lessons (yeah, we've only been in Canada 4 years and in Calgary right on the doorstep of the Rockies). We went to Nakiska Ski Resort in Kananaskis which is about an hour West of Calgary
It was fantastic and the kids loved it too - we're already planning our next trip to practice what we learnt.
We're probably going to invest in some gear too but man, there is so much to learn - so many brands and variations on everything (skis, poles, boots, you name it).
It's probably better to rent for a while first (even though the rental part is a PITA) until we know what we need but the boots and stuff look so coool !!! LOL
Has anyone bought Ski equipment online? Looks like you can get some stuff way cheaper than in local stores but do you really really need to touch / try stuff?
