My son is starting his second season of ski racing. We are looking for a good Jr ski that won't break the bank. Our challenges are that he is small and very light. Right now we are looking at the Head Supershape Team LR. Not sure if this will be good enough or if we should step it up to a race ski.
He trains 3 days/wk (about 8 hrs total) with 7 races throughout the year. We mountain ski as a family about 15 days/yr.
He is a fearless skier with great technique who enjoys racing, although the terrain park and skiing trees are his real love (I won't let him do freestyle just yet).
At his age/size does the ski matter that much?
Thanks in advance for your input.
