My son started skiing this year. We got him a pair of Nordica twin tipped skis. In two months the mental has started to break off the front of one ofthe ski's. I was goiven some very conflicting info. One place said it couldn't be fixed or rather it could but it would break right away so it wouldn't be worth it, we needed new skis. Another place said they can fix it and it might even be stronger. One place said "park" skis are made different and should last longer while a different person at the same shop said that all skis were made essentially the same and will break based on use. That my son needs to learn how to land.
Two months is not an idea amount of trime for skis to last for us. It's not even remotely possible for him to continue skiing if they are this easy to break.
Is any of this accurate?
What skis' should we be looking at? Is there a ski that is especially made with a better quality to last longer and in a terrain park?
