    Not really a gender divide at that size. Find something small and go for it.

    I think I have a 16 boot if you canít find smaller.

    Thread crap do ask how do you know when the little guys need to size up in skis? My 6 yo is using his 90cm sticks that he got last year. Doing well on moderate blue terrain at this point at the most. When should he size up?

    Jumped my (large) 5.5 YO from 93s to 107s last weekend. I don't have any 100s in the hoard. Took him a couple of runs to get used to them. Now he's skiing the same stuff he was before, only significantly faster.

If someone could make a jacket of those three things it would no doubt be the most popular and prized item in all of your closets.

    My boy just turned 6, and he's been on 100 cm RTMs for the past year in the midwest. He skied on 90s for about a year before that. I just put him on 107 twin tips, and with a more centered mount, they still seem a little on the short side. Depending on mount point, I bet he would do just fine on 100s or even something a bit longer after a few runs. Just keep the 90s around for a little while to see which ones he grabs.

    Donít be in a hurry to size up. I would wait until they can turn in terrain that dictates when and where they turn vs being able to turn wherever/ whenever. My .02

    He hasn't complained ,just wondering if there is anything detrimental to staying with the 90cm this season

    I upped my daughter from 90 to 112 this season (112 is spot-on based on her height) but she struggled on them so a month ago we went back to 90 and sheís skiing much more confidently. Ski the length your son feels good on.

    What ever ski they have fun on is the right ski. Try them out, but let them decide.

    My kid is 8 and a pretty strong skier riding blacks and doubles. He still resorts to a dynamic wedge / stem Christie when he is lazy, bored and/or starting a run in really steep terrain. He claims he does not know he he is doing this. He took a class last week and when I asked his instructor how to get him to stop she first said tie his knees together. She then said put him on longer skis. The longer the ski, the harder it is to wedge. I moved him from 127 twin tips to 130 race skis and he is wedging way less. And he is having blast cause he is going much faster (faster ski, fewer wedge turns).

    Moral: of your kid is still relying on a wedge, keep them short. If they are carving, canít hurt to try them long.

    Friend hooked it up with a 14.5 and tiny ski at the local shop. My needs have been filled. If youíre still hunting there was some micro gear on eBay

    Free - Rossignol J Comp bindings - 0.75 - 4.5 DIN, with one extra brake assembly. Missing one screw for the toe piece, which I replaced with one that's close but not an exact match.

    SOLD

    Looking for a pair of boots for my nephew, sounds like size 1 if we can get him to hike this spring before his feet grow again. Anyone unloading?

    Any chance it has bindings that you'd be willing to part with? They'd need to hold a size 4 boot so might be too big even if so (and assuming you'd separate)

    Hey Rudy, no bindings on this one. They had to go to the scrap heap.

    I've got a set of Elan 80s with bindings. Details are a ways back in this thread, but they are still available.

    Hey all of you regulars in here with the kids, I live in JH and frequent the coupla thrift stores reguarly. I see a LOT of kids gear. I'd be willing to pick up then hook up mags. Thing is, I got no kids, spend too little time around them. So, I don't know what parents are looking for.
    What are always hard to find, first to go type things? Hard goods or soft?

    The reason I bring this up is because yesterday i saw a pair of 90cm volkl tigersharks in 8.5/10 condition. W.fancy kid clamps to boot...$5.
    Almost bought those on principle.

    If I can help, PM me.

    ^^^those would be picked up pretty quickly around here.

    I would say hard goods. Especially small sizes. They are harder to come by. Small boots. Sub 18 Mondo are pretty hot.

    Otherwise, once you get up to the 120cm range, most maggot kids are in real skis. Kind of like the kid version of what us adults would want. For instance, the Gotama or Manyra for the kiddos is a rocker, flat, rocker stiffer ski. Race skis are also popular.

    The Walmart style ski - formless, forgiving, beginner, what ever skis will Sometimes fill a gap for folks, but most around here are not too interested in those skis.

    That would be a sick service. Living away from a ski town it is harder finding decent used kids gear.
