Cost of gear in vancuvour/whistler
hey guys just wondering how much it would cost to buy a full setup in vancouvour/ whistler? jacket, pants, gloves, ski's, boots, bindings, poles? i won't prob reasonable to expensive stuff?
umm cheapest skis you'll get are about 400, boots for 300, binders say 120.....pants jacket 150 each, googs 60 poles $4 so thats $1200 aboutish and all that si dirt cheap....its gonna be hard to find those prices on anything decent now, but its doable.
yes i am quite aware of my wonderful typing skillz. J-WHAT!
Vancouver's an expensive place, and Canadians get ripped off on a lot of shit (Oakley, for one, although I don't know many places selling Oakley outerwear in Van anyway). As the guy above me said, look for at least $1200... you could always buy used stuff from Vancouver locals

order off evogear.com there super good, cheap and fast, i live in va and i got skis, bindings, boots pole anfd googs off their for cheap, svaed about 500 and it took 3 days to get, but they dont ship centain brands to canada, so f u now anyone just over the boarder ship to them or just accomodate your order around what they ship...
so 2g will get my a decent setup?
more than decent. With the exchange rate, doing a trip to the US might be worth it. Also, buy your stuff on sale, it will end up being a lot cheaper. Used stuff is good too.
