Salomon Fish Ski - Kids'

Posted

Pros: Good Grip, Reasonable Float, Not Too Stiff

Got these for my 8 y.o. son  55-60 lbs, went with 120 cm length.  Used the Rossi J something-or-other jr binding.  He was moving up from a much shorter 95 cm wood core Elan ski.  First time out he hated the additional length, but by the end of his second full day on the skis he loved'em.  His ski instructor from the prior winter was impressed by the way my son was bending the skis and getting power out of the tails.

 

Saw big improvement in my son's skiing over the past winter.  The skis definitely didn't hold him back.  He transitioned from skiing single blacks with an occasional double-black in ideal conditions, to skiing everything Gore mountain (NY) has to offer, including lap after lap on bumped-up double-diamonds in the Spring.  Several of his friends were also on the Solly Fish and they also improved quite a bit over the course of the winter.

 

Note that the mfg'ers marked mounting point is for an "all mountain" mount, not a "park" mount.

 

Paid $89 for skis ('07 model on sale) + $40 for bindings + $40 to get bindings mounted/tested.

Salomon Fish Ski - Kids'
Description:

Deck your aspiring little trickster out with the Salomon Kids Fish Ski, a junior twin tip of just the right build and proportions for park and pipe play. But the floaty Fish s midsize waist helps it hold its own in the powder and crud as well, with ample sidecut for groomer cruising. Salomon s fiberglass Monocoque construction and lightweight composite core make the ski agile and maneuverable, making it a great match for the pint-sized sort who want to follow their big brothers into the terrain park. The twin tip design lets your young freestyler ski straight or switch equally well.
