Trying again..Atomic JR vs Head JR vs Blizzard Jr

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I need to know what ski would perform best for GS for a LIGHT, but skilled skier.  Thank you for input.

I think some of the details that you are going to have to provide are:

 

  1. Size, wt and age
  2. How skilled (I'm going to guess advanced/ expert if your are racing).
  3. How aggressive are you.
  4. How fit (strong)

 

When I was younger I was always on long stiff skis and had to work my butt off to get them to perform, but the effort was greatly rewarded.  Now Age and wt have gained a little wink.gif and I still love FIS skis because of the work required and the rewards gained just for pleasure skiing.

 

I know others here will answer better, but help them along with more information when you ask questions.

Skier is 11 years old, 12 in May

Female

88 lbs

5'2" and growing (mom 5' 8ish"  dad 6'2" )

so, tall and light

I would rate her as expert..good technical skills, podium J5 racer last year..this year starting out a bit slow, but had a boot issue that is resolved :), 

Thanks :)

Fitness level- physically active, but not terribly muscular.  She plays field hockey in off season, is agile, but far from "athletic" build..too lanky!

It is hard to say how aggressive because she is one of those skiers that looks like she is just gliding along, but then puts up great times..she makes it look easy

That will help those with better knowledge of whats currently available and what to suggest.

We sell hundreds of Jr race skis each year from seven brands and kids win races on all of them. There is not enough difference to really worry about. Some kids seem to "like" one brand or another but there is no rhyme or reason to it.
