Coming up to the end of the season sales and looking for a pair of skis for my 11yr old son. He's currently just over 5ft and about 90lbs. He's a very good and aggressive skier and spends most of time with me and other adults skiing blacks and double-blacks and all over the mtn in the Canadian Rockies.
I think if I was to get him a ski right now it would probably be the Volkl Gotama Junior's 148cm (seems like the best ski/size for the what he needs/likes right now, but they are nowhere to be found at this point in the year -- anyone have a used pair they've out grown?). I'm also thinking that by next year he will be a few inches taller and a few pounds heavier and that may not be the ski and size that will best suite him to help take his skiing to the next level. What do you do for a skier that is in between the Jr and Adult skis? Look to a Ladies ski? Does anyone have any suggestions? Feel free to point out specific skis if you know of others that would be good to look at and/or try? Thanks!
