Example Scenarios of Skier Expenses

The following are examples of skier expenses based on their grade level, experience, and how they obtain their equipment based on data included on Skier Checklist & Expenses and Equipment. The examples are a subset of all the possibilities and assume purchase of equipment specifically from Finn Sisu -- not purchasing from another store or purchasing used equipment, which skiers are welcome to do.

In the tables below, an asterisk, * , after an item indicates that this expense is paid for as part of the team enrollment process.

Note that the Winter Training Trip is not included in expenses below as it is variable and can be minimized or eliminated through fundraising.

Sam the 6th Grader and New Skier

As a sixth grader, Sam will pay Booster Club dues. He will rent two pairs of skis from the Booster Club and will purchase two pairs of poles, a pair of Combi/Pursuit ski boots, the kick wax kit, and wax remover.

Neha the 9th Grader and Returning Skier

Last year was Neha's first year as an eighth grader. Her poles and boots still fit, but Neha only gets to rent a single pair of skis now. Neha will pay Booster Club dues, rent one pair of skis from the Booster Club,Ā  and use her two sets of poles and Combi/Pursuit boots from last year. She will purchase a single pair of skis. Neha's kick wax kit and wax remover from last year will make it through the coming season.

Elaine the 11th Grader and Returning Skier

Elaine is in the eleventh grade and has grown a lot in the past couple years -- so much that she needs to purchase ALL new gear. Elaine will pay Booster Club dues, and she will use her kick wax kit and wax remover from last year.
