The ski is the Gotama Jr, which is rockered and twin tip. The 118 hits her forehead maybe an inch above her eyebrow when she's standing barefoot; the 128 is probably an inch or so taller than she is. If it were a flat tailed, non-rockered hard snow ski, the shorter ski would certainly be plenty of ski, maybe even on the long side, but with a rockered full twin, should I go with the 128? I'm not too worried about whether she'll get additional seasons out of them b/c she has a younger brother who can inherit them. Sure, if the 128 won't be too much ski for her, then I'd go with it so she gets an extra season out of them, but I'm mostly wanting to put her on the right size for her current height/weight/ability. On the one hand, she's very light so err on the shorter side, but on the other hand the ski has considerable early tip rise and a full twin tip tail.
So, advice from any and all is welcome, but if there are any Volkl dealers out there who really know how to size this particular ski for a kid, I'd really like to hear from you.
