Hey gus, i have such a crisis right now and i would be happy for your advices or tips. Im normal 19yo man from the Czech Republic, Czechia - call it what you want. I will move from my home, bc of studies. First of all. I love skiing, especially ski touring/BC. However, there are no mountains (they are, but not for this type of skiing), Austria is far, same with Germany. Slovakia is good, with nice mountains and good snow conditions, but still, I cant be there more than 4 times in the winter. Yes, i will live on my own, with money from part-time jobs, but is it rational decision to buy pair of skis, skins, boots which is really expensive (and where are clothes, avalanche equipment,etc.).
So my question is. Should i listen to brain and leave skiing and find something else, or listen to my heart and buy these things, bc skiing is something that i really love? I want to know your opinions guys!
P.S. Sorry for my english if its bad.
