Looking to find AT kit for a 10-year old girl. She's a super strong skier. Skis the pistes reluctantly when snow is scarce. Loves trees and good snow. Has a newly found affection for steeps. I'm planning a trip for her to Jackson Hole, getting a guide for a week. Want to get her something that will make heading out easier. Bindings are the big issue, although while she's survived every condition on stock rental skis I'd love to get her a ski that is more suitable as well.
I'm only a side country sort of guy, so don't need super light set up. Something similar to Dukes would do for her. Half hour to hour hike outs are probably the max at this point/ Would like her to be able to ski in her Alpine boots so she can keep the confidence and control she has now.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
AT set up for her wins. Short track AT setup that lets her ski downhill in familiar gear is even better.
I wanted to wait until she stopped growing so I didn't have to rebuy every year, but I feel too guilty holding her back on unsuitable crap equipment.
