Looking for a ski and bindings for a 14 year old, about a 5/6 (maybe 7) skier. Used exclusively in the East, so good edge hold and not too wide. It will be a present, so has to be either new or have good cosmetics. NOT looking for a park ski. She is not an aggressive skier so not too stiff. Something in the 160 range.
WTB eastern ski ~160 for 110 lb girl class 5/6 skier

I have a pair of 158cm Dynastar Contact Cross Ti w/ PX12 bindings that might fit the bill. They're last year's model, but brand new in the wrapper. I won them in a raffle, but had no need for them personally, but never got around to selling them.
I haven't personally skied them, but my understanding is that they're a more forgiving relative of the Contact 4x4, which I know is a popular ski around here, as well as with some of my Ontario instructor colleagues. Plenty of edge hold for all our lovely eastern ice. I suspect they'd be a good fit for someone of your daughter's ability - not too much of a handful, but enough of a ski that they can keep up as she advances as a skier.
I was hoping to sell them locally, but if you're interested, I don't mind working out shipping.
