Hi everyone!

I will spend two weeks in France during March: One in Paris and another at the Alps.

I have already collected several tips from you to one of my favourite hobbies: Eating/Cooking. Lots of Restaurants/Boulangeries/Patisseries that I ´ll try to visit during my short stay.

Now I need some tips for my other "new" hobby. As an inhabitant of a sunny and far away country, I will need to buy clothes and some equipment for snowboarding. Does anyone know any place that I can buy them at reasonable prices in PAris? As it is late season, I hope to get something on sale.

Really need help on this!

Thanks a lot

try aux vieux campeurs rue des ecoles in the 5th ,some store like go sport might be out of stock as it is a seasonal item ,but i think the best if you are not a permanent skieur is to rent all ski ressort do it"station de ski in french"they also sell end of season equipment be aware of your luggage weight on your return as those day it is easy to rack up a bill for over limit.

Don't know that you will get anything on sale. The sales finish here on 11 Feb.

I agree that renting would be easier.

Good luck!

Thanks Debbie and Cris!

Sure. Renting iseasier. But I think it´s already time for me to buy them.

I have spent so much money renting clothes that I could already have a complete set! Beside.. They are awful.

I´ll keep on looking for a shop. Help still wanted!
