My son is 12, 5'2",100 lbs, avid skier,fearless and fast. We live in Portland OR so mostly ski at Mt. Hood, Bachelor. Every December we ski at Big Ski, Montana and Grand Targhee, Wyoming. If you know the terrain at Mt. Hood we are blessed with icy conditions so he has done most of his learning here. He's been skiing for about 5 years, more aggressively the last 3 yrs.
I've sold his gear from last year and looking to replace them.
He says he wants All Mountain Twins ... I've done some research on this and wow, these are spendy skis! Personally I don't have much knowledge about all this gear so need some advice on what my son really needs as opposed to what he really wants.
