It's about time...hand it to the guys from New Zealand to finally realize kids want big-mountain, fat skis too! Kingswood, the maker of premium bamboo-core powder boards, has announced 3 models of fat skis for kids. All have the lively, lightweight, vertically-laminated bamboo cores. They are not inexpensive, but you get the Kingswood handmade quality you really can't find in kids' skis anywhere else.
