Well, I thought since 'tis the season, I'd throw some skis under the tree this year. More specifically:
1. Skis for the daughter: 13 yrs old, 120 lbs. Low intermediate, learning to do parallel turns. Very aggresive, and fearless on skis. Twin tips and/or feminine graphics a plus. I'm thinking 150-160 ish on length. Pretty open here, just looking to avoid the rental counter this year.
2. Skis for son: Line Afterbang new or used (if not too banged up!) 177 or 184.
