Ski Sizing for Little Racer's or Grom's

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Quick question for the "experienced" parents or coaches, ex-racers.

 

When looking at ski sizes for Jr. Racers, how do you size the skis for the different race types?  Head even, to the nose, to the chin, above the head?

 

Slalom Skis - ?

 

GS/Super G - ?

Depends on age and skill, but I have a 10-year old girl just finishing her first year as a U12. The norm in he group has been roughly -10 cm for SL and +10 for speed skis (gs and sg).

my u-12 was on 137 sl and 151 GS…next year, as a 1st year u-14, I bought 163 GS and 146 SL.  She has tried and loves both. She is 5'2 currently, but only about 90 lbs
