I need epicski's collective wisdom on choosing a ski for my daughter.
Yesterday, I saw a used demo 164cm / 97mm Salomon Shogun selling for $180, and I'm thinking, that might be just about right for my daughter - given her current growth rate, I project she'll grow to 163-4cm in height and probably around 110-115 lbs in weight around next season, and most likely eventually up to 170cm / 120 lbs or so in the next few years. It seems that Shogun at that length would be a reasonable choice as a one quiver ski for her eventually, but I'm afraid if it might prove too much next season.
What do you all think ? Would 164cm Shogun be too wide / too long for my daughter ? Would Shogun be a good one-quiver ? Should I look for something narrower / shorter ? Wait till she grows more ?
