Can anyone help me get my girl new skis for the Special Olympics? Are there any like promo skis or something someone would donate to her?
This is a great cause. You may just hear from someone in the EpicSki community that can help you out. Regardless, keep us posted on how she does. You should post some more photos and keep us up to date on the quest. I'd like to hear how it goes!
130cm garage sale skis are probably old kids skis,that may or may not be 'shaped'. At 5'5" your daughter is not a kid. she's a young lady. I bet your bindings are so old that your local ski shop probably would refuse to work on them. So you probably need longer 'shaped' skis and bindings.
What kind of skiing events does she like to do? That will influence what kind of ski she should be on.
I would suggest that you contact your local ski club. I bet they would be glad to help. With such a short time line shipping stuff will be very tight to get it to you on time. Google Maine Ski Club and you'll find them all over the state. The best way to search is to include the name of the closest city. Ski clubs usually have a good relationship with the local ski shops who also may be able your whole team.
For the past few years my ski club has sponsered 2 adaptive needs skiers and 1 adult each. We have a raffle each year and the proceeds pay for an all expense paid trip to an adaptive ski school in Winter Park Colorado. We send different people each time.
I'm not sure if Epicski.com has a listing of ski clubs sorted by state. It would be nice if there was.
Not knowing what city your near, here's a partial list of Maine Ski Clubs to get you started.
