Junior or Adult skis for my son?
He's 13, 5'3" and about 125 pounds. I'd call him a "Level 7-ish" skier, but who knows. He skis confidently on all groomers and can tip them over and arc a nice turn on tougher blues & easier blacks. He enjoys the easier double blacks at Stowe, but is still building up confidence on upper Starr. He enjoys the woods, but doesn't live there.
Ideally, I would think something in the 78-88 family would be good for him, probably in a 150(?).
Tough thing is I just don't know how he would do on adult skis & there aren't too many kid skis out there that fit the bill.
One I've found is the Blizzard Cochise Jr, but I'm concerned that the 94mm footprint is overkill for the east and would be a major adjustment from his 68mm Blizzard kid skis. Maybe not though?
Other ideas would be a softer adult ski... What do you all think?
