Hi all, we are an Australian family of four travelling to California in Feb 2013. We are hoping to ski at the Big Bear resorts. Is there a rental option available for ski pants and jackets? We come from tropical north Queenland where we hardly have a Winter and have never skied before. Buying ski clothes for us would be a waste of money and bulky for luggage. I know we need googles but do we need specialised clothes? Feb 2012 we were at Yosemite in the snow with just jeans, thermals , lots of layers and warm coats (waterproof). Any information or advise would be appreciated.
