Hitting the slopes can be an expensive proposition. It can also be a wasteful one if you’ve never skied before and decide it's not for you -- only after buying all the necessary equipment and clothes. Before you make the financial commitment, considering renting. Ski equipment is easy to rent, but now ski clothes (parkas, snow pants, helmets, etc.) can be rented. The website getoutfitted.com makes it easy: Browse and order your rentals online, and the company will ship them directly to your house. When you’re done, just pack them all in the box and use the prepaid shipping label to send them back.
