I'm going to ask a moderator to move this into a new thread.  I think you'll get better responses that way.

Mod Note: move done.  Thanks for the heads up.

 

Questions for @Lizp :  what region do you usually ski in?  What length skis did your son use last season?

post #4 of 6

What kind of runs does he now ski and what are his aspirations for this season and next?  

Does he race?
