Default Advice on skis

Hi,
I've never been skiing in my life so have zero knowledge on the subject and
would like your advice on selling if that's possible.

A friend of mine has given me the following (the makes and models are a bit
sketchy I think):

1 pair Nordica NM 530 Boots
1 pair Dynastar Sport 66 Skis
1 pair Salomon SX60 Boots
1 pair Look B638 Ski poles
1 pair Dynstar (Vallees?) Skis
1 pair Rossignol (Aosta Sport?) skis

I've got all of that information from the items themselves so I'm not sure
if the models are exactly accurate or if they're just random statements but
that's defiantely what it says on them.

I have no idea if they're any good or what would even make them good (i.e.
length, weight, make etc.)

I have measured the Dynastar skis and they are 160cm in length. Is that good
or or bad? I can't find any size information on any of the boots either and
they don't look to be adjustable to fit. Is this normal? Or is it the skis
that would normally adjust?

I'm hoping to sell them on eBay or in the local newspaper and just wondered
if any of you had any idea on a value.

BTW, everything has been used once (i.e one ski trip) or twice so I'm told,
so I'm sure that will take the price down a fair bit.

If anyone would be kind enough to tell me more about the items that would be
very much appreciated. It really would .

Best regards,
Jon

Near as I can tell, you got some 20 year old stuff (well
15 at best). which you may be able to sell cheap. The
boots, especially the Nordicas are probably on their last
legs as far as plastic deterioration goes. they will
probably "explode" the first time on the hill. The skis
seem old enough so that the bindings on them are
probably out of indemnification and so aren't worth the
screws holding them on. The skis? maybe some retro-
grouch may want them. (LAL, call on line one?)
