I hope I can get some feedback and help from the many knowledgeable racing coaches and parents who read this board. Please allow be a little background concerning my Daughter. She's an 8 yr. old J6. Athletically she has always been a standout in whatever sport she participates in, hockey, soccer, baseball etc. She is also bigger that most boys and girls her age which probably accounts for much of her success. She's 4' 5" & 78 lbs. Last fall she wanted to join the local ski racing team even though she had never skied before. BTW, I skied years ago (New England) recreationally, so my knowledge of ski racing is ZERO! Nevertheless, I picked up a pair of Atomic Race 7 (110) skis for her and she skied for the first time in mid December. She loved it from the first minute and picked it up rather quickly. Perhaps all the hockey (skating) helped her with understanding edges. Anyway, she won her first J6 race two weeks later and never finished lower than 4th all season (but for 1 DQ). She won the overall (J6) title as well as her teams overall trophy for most points in a season. It's all been a bit overwhelming. She did all of this on old skis, and boots that are too big for her. I would like to get her (new) equipment that is best suited too her. I read all I can, about junior equipment, but I still feel a bit clueless. She has grown to be a huge Lindsey Vonn fan, so right now she's a bit bias towards Rossi since that's what Lindsey has. I've been considering their RSX and also looking into Dynastar. Her coaches like Atomic and Vokel because they're tied into the local ski shop and that's what they carry. Which is probably great stuff but I would like to narrow it down starting with all brands. I would enjoy reading any and all input you have to give. Thanks.
