I'm looking into procuring some gear. I'm an advanced snowboarder, but recently, I put my 5 year old kid on skis, and watching him learn, I feel like I should give skiing a shot.
One big issue is that I'm exceptionally small: 5'1, 125 lbs.
I see a lot of youth skis in the 146-150cm range, and I'm thinking of heading down that route, but I'm not too sure of the quality of kid's skis.
I do see Rossignol Experience 74's in 146cm with bindings for $200, which seems like a steal. There are also Volkl RTM 150 cm's. Any thoughts on these?
I'm not looking to spend a lot of money, and my goals aren't very far fetched. I just hope to get eventually to the level where I can carve around blues. Though... in the long run, I think it would be awesome to do cross country and snow camping, but that's a whole 'nother topic.
