EP 10: How to choose skiing vs. snowboarding – should you rent or buy?

Choosing the right skis or snowboard as a first-time buyer can be overwhelming, so we sat down to chat with the experts at Black Tie Skis – Mammoth. Colin explains the decisions that go into picking out the right skis based on height, weight, snow conditions, and style.

We also talk about whether you should rent or buy and what you should buy (boots) vs. rent.

I hope that you find this conversation as helpful as I did. We got to learn so much about gear selection and the amount of work that goes behind the scenes of getting us on the mountain.

We also chat about Mammoth Mountain and what makes it an amazing ski destination that needs to get added to your “must ride” list.

    The Trip Outside folks are a great crew who are genuinely interested in conservation and helping people responsibly recreate outdoors. The Trip Outside podcasts are a great way to learn more about a destination before you go. Many times, it can be difficult to choose an outfitter or tour company when you don’t know who to trust or anything about the company’s ethics. You can rest assured that any recommendations from Trip Outside have already taken this into account. They also offer very helpful tips and advice about how to plan an outdoor adventure when you don’t know anything about the place you are traveling. Thanks Trip Outside!
