Both of my sons phasing out of Junior skis and need to get them some new boards for this next season. We ski about 10 days in Utah and Colorado and about the same East Coast (Mid-Atlantic, but East Coast sounds better). Looking for a ski to put them on in the 165-170 range with the hope they can get two years out of them. Also looking for a ski that can do both locations. Both very good skiers. 5'3 and about 120 pounds. I was thinking they would still be in JR skis but 158 just too small to buy for just one season.
My question is: Does anyone have a suggestion for a ski for them based on the info above. I am nervous an adult 170 would be too much ski for them. I ski the Mantra which is great and was thinking of the same ski for them or the Gotoma.
Your thoughts/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
