  1. I loved this post! i actually read your blog very often, and you’re
    always coming out with pretty great stuff. I shared this on my facebook, and
    my followers really liked it. Continue the very good work 🙂

  2. Hi Tim

    Unfortunately, I do not have any but I know that people sometimes had luck asking at rental places to buy used rental boots for a very cheap price. Maybe it is worth a try. I would love to hear how your skiing season was! Cheers, Marie

  3. Hi,

    By any chance do you have any used rental boots that might fit an average size 7 yr old girl that you are looking to replace and would sell? Other equipment her size?
    We will use them over the next month – 6 weeks but next year she will have out grown them so I am reluctant to buy a new pair. We live in Norwood and ski on our farm land near Lone Cone, so daily rentals from Telluride unfortunately doesn’t work.
    Any suggestion?
