My parents said theyd spend 300 on my new skis cuz I broke old ones so I found mojo 80's for 450 and I owe them 150 (canadian). I think thats pretty fair but I know a lot of you guys work for all your own equipment or your parents pay for all of it. btw I made this after I saw the "RIP skis" thread
ya that other kid needs to get a job, or just do his homework. my parents stopped buying me stuff when i went to middle school. i think you got a pretty fair deal since your skis broke. its nice that your parents helped you out so you wouldn't be without skis in march.
Ya exactly i got the invaders pretty cheap plus i'm riding on demo bindings i bought and some ghetto nordica boots becaue i had to earn all the money to pay for my stuff this year but i was making the best of it till my mom took them away with only like a month left in the season
i had to pay like 350 last season for my skis and bindings. my mom did pay 200 for my boots though and they get a lot of stuff for me on birthdays and christmas. im getting new the invaders in like 10 days for my birthday for example
You're about as useful as a one-legged man at an ass kicking contest
when life gives you lemons, find someone whose life has given them vodka and have a party.
my parents buy me my skis but they say it has to last a long time so if i want new skis after a year they will not get it for me and same with jackets. So i just buy my goggles and stuff like that my self
alll i can say is all you kids need to get fuckin jobs, i ve been working since i was 14, im only 18 and i have to pay for my car gas, phone, all my ski stuff, basically anything i wanna buyim [aying for, i save up and bought $2000 i mac a couple years ago and they didnt help me wiht a cent, become and idividual what aee you gonna do when you move out?
I buy everything. Sometimes my parents are nice and get me a piece or two of gear for christmas. They gave me a jacket and a pass this year cause it's my first year of ollege, which is sick, but I didn't get anything last year.
Haha, I've spent over $2,000 on skiing this year and I got both my passes for free. And yes, I pay for my own gear. Expecting your parents to buy everything for you is not the best way to set yourself up for life outside of the house, to say the least.
im only 13 though so earning money isnt exactly easy... but im makin either a grand or 3 grand this summer (American money) and i might buy skis and a laptop if do the 2 grand option but if only one grand ima buy a laptop
Charmander is uber steezy, man he fuckin sends it dood!
they did until i was 13 i think... now i pay everything on my own, i work in a shop tho so I get big discounts, and I work at a ski hill so I get a free pass.. keeps this expensive hobby relatively cheap
I got hand me downs for years then when I wanted twins I had to pay for them myself. I pay for everything too. Food when I'm out, clothes, computer stuff, camera equip, and I don't get an allowance. I'm not really sure where most of my money comes from either...

Ski_Unit_19 - just tell your parents to lighten up and stop cock blocking you
my parents will pay what they think is resonable for skiing with the family. So like up to $250 for skis, $100 for bindings, and $200 for boots, and only when I need new stuff. Also they will pay for any days of skiing that are 'family ski days' everything else comes from me.
And if you would like information on which boots you should buy ask these people:
