Hey all........Newbie on Epic here.....
Soooo my 13 year old son started skiing last year.....a few weekends up in VT. He's obviously a freshy beginner, but solid.....no prob's on the blues and a few blacks, hockey stopping, yada yada. For half the cost of a seasonal rental + deposit, I can pick him up a pair of 2 or 3 year old skis, and we own 'em......and he can pass along to my youngest son in a couple of years.
In this regard, can anyone recommend a good ski model from the past year or so that will allow him to finish his beginnings and also take him into the next level for the next couple of years? Also, size rec's? ........ He's 5'5" (165cm) and growing ...... 135 - 140 Lbs) ...... do I satisfy the beginner need and size him to his chin or just below.....or nose........or head and allow him to grow into it (both physically and skill)? We ski East Coast VT hard stuff.
Thanks much in advance!
