Should you rent or buy?  There are three things to consider as you decide: how fast kids grow, getting the most for your money, and how you want your skis to perform.  Whether you rent or buy remember, it's possible to get you and your family outside!  Many of us got ourselves into skiing on rented and used gear, and traded up as we fell in love with getting above the inversion and spending more time in nature.
