Some Ski and Snowboard Shopping

Went to Black Sport in Valaliky, a 20 minute taxi ride away from dorms. The shop owner was really busy serving customers but made time to show us what we were looking for, how to choose skis or a snowboard and answer any questions.
I needed 170cm skis so found four pairs I liked the look of and asked him to recommend which he would choose. 

He said to get the Rossignol of Salomon pair and fitted my boots to the bindings to try them both on.
My skis should have been 79€, ski boots 65€ and poles 10€ and he said he would do the whole lot for €110, equivalent to £85.
Complete ski hire is €28 in the Tatras mountains so as I have a few days skiing planned it will definitely be a good investment for the next 4 years!

Niall got a Burton snowboard with Burton bindings and Burton boots, worth €750 new, for €200!
Sarah also got a Burton board set and Laura got a complete board set.

Heading up the slopes at 9am tomorrow to try them out - can't wait!
