The Cascade XC Ski Area has (or had) some used skis on consignment - maybe it would be worth checking with them.

Does anyone know if they will open this year? I see it's for sale, and read that the Adirondack Mountain Club is considering buying it to make an educational center...

ADK has finalized the deal to purchase, but Cascade will operate as normal this winter, until April 1st.

This weekend is the West Mountain Ski Swap. So far that's where I've gotten all the equipment for our kids. They usually have some XC gear every year too.

Also, I should add, check out the iskyny program. 3rd and 4th graders get a card that lets them ski free 3 times at most places in NY. That's 3 free passes at EACH resort, not 3 total. Plus Monday evening and Tuesday evening at West Mountain are $25 for adults and kids 6 and under are free. That made for some cheap skiing when my kids were learning. Kudos West Mountain!

Thanks for the info, but I'm on the other side of the state.

Still haven't figured out what to do with my kids. I asked them if they wanted to go to ski school but they aren't convinced they want to yet (for DH). As far as XC I don't know - I don't want to buy gear. The toddler skis I have will still fit them but they boots they have now will have the same issues I had earlier. Not sure if I want to mess with that or just wait until they can use a system binding and boot.
