Skiing is not the least expensive of hobbies. For those that want to learn to ski, one of the best beginner ski tips that I can give you is to not dive in too deep right from the start. To get a whole new set of skis and ski gear can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars. There are alternatives.
Many ski lodges or ski shops will provide beginner skiers with the opportunity to rent their skis instead of buying. Ski rentals are far less expensive than purchasing skis and you should think about this option if the costs have stood in the way of you learning to ski. As beginner ski tips go, saving money is a good one.
