So, my very slim and light 12yo son has outgrown his K2 Groms.
He is just now getting the skies on edge and being more aggressive.
He's new, only his third season, but he handles some gnarly blues at Sugarbush by getting down
pretty elegantly, rather than making the ski do all the work.
Put it this way: He slides around very beautifully!
What's the next step up? My gut tells me it sort of doesn't matter as long as it's a decent ski.
He's front-side only now, but envies the kids who ski trees. WAY above his pay grade for now though.
He's in leased Atomic Hawx boots, and has learned how to use the boot to power the ski.
Really helped get him closer to always on his edges.
Just for the sake of conversation, is there a decent junior ski out there I might want to think about?
He's light and small....weighs 70 pounds with bricks in his pockets, and he's maybe 4'9".
ps, not a chance on a pure park and pipe ski, but he can ride a bit of switch.
