I'm wondering if there is a general rule of thumb when kids transition form a Jr. ski to and adult ski. My son isn't a big kid, age 14, 5' 1", 95 lbs, and just short of an expert skier. Pretty much skis it all in Colorado, groomers, trees, powder, steep, a bit of park from time to time, everything up to double black, etc. Basically he and his friend hit the lift in the AM and we don't see them again until sweep. About the only thing at this point he doesn't ski is back country. Skis 35 to 45 days a year. If I can get 2 years out of these ski I'll be a happy camper. Two general questions:
1. If getting new skis, am I at the point I should look at adult skis or still stick with Jr. skis?
2. Based on my description name a few skis I might take a look at. (Armada Edollo in an adult ski & Armada Tantrum in a Jr. ski are a couple I've looked, not stuck on Armada but saw them in a local shop).
