    I believe that I have both Look and Tyrolia, NIB, in my garage. Call me this evening if I haven't called you yet.

    Have some 67cm Rossi Princess skis with fish scale bases. White with pink & purple flourishes. Great shape considering the duty they served. They helped my two girls get comfortable on the snow and are looking for a new home. No binders. Also have some mondo size 14.5 rear entry Technica Racer boots. Blue, great shape. Same story: Help this stuff find a useful home. Trades preferred; otherwise free for the taking. Local Denver deals very much preferred. PM me if interested.

    Got a pair of junior skis with junior bindings. Head XRC 147cm. They're in great condition. Located in Whistler. Free if you cover shipping. Send a PM if you're interested.

    Had a craigslist ad up from before which has pics:

    EDIT: Skis are gone.

    Wondering what most people do for the very first season. My little guy is 20months, big feet - about size 8 which is mondo point size 15. Planning to do a little toodling around in the springtime and some backyard stuff before then if it snows in Vancouver.

    My question - is it a waste of time to go with the 40$ plastic skis from Mountain Coop? I figure that the cheap plastic ones might be a good place to start for this year - he'll barely be 2 yrs so I have no plans to overdo it. Also if there is anyone with old gear kicking around in the Vancouver area (for really little ones) let me know.

    the plastic, strap-on skis are great to start with - we did that with our son at 16 months - those 67cm Rossi skis that ienjoydrinking beer has are the next step - get both and get boots - you'll be glad you did when your kid is ready to move up - it's only December - it's a long season and your kid will probably get better - ours (now 4.5 years) went from the plastic skis to real skis in 2-3 months - he still uses the plastic jobbers for tooling around the compound when we get snow at the house

    ski the babies!

    Ditto, my kid loved hers and she got out a lot on them. Helped her balance on skis. Plus they are fun for the kid, gets em used to having things on your feet and sliding.

    If you are looking for something even cooler, check out the toddler skis on SlideWright. Same concept and same binding, but a great looking wooden ski. I'm not big on the holidays, but I know what mommy's like, and these skis would make Owen's mommy happy. 70cm = $60.

    I have plenty of this kind of stuff. Not sure I can do obermeier and blue and white, but if you need a cheap kids' jacket and are a little less picky.....

    Those look way nicer than the MEC PBA version.

    Great idea, Buzz. I can't believe I'm just seeing this thread.

    Gonna take my 3 year old out this Spring. I'd like to see what I can put together before then. Particularly, I'd like to get her used to the boots well in advance of actually going.

    Anybody got some tiny boots (toddler 8-9) they want to share/sell/donate? I'm also interested in skis/bindings and poles.


    Edit: And, if I'm moving too fast with "real" boots and skis for a 3-4 year old, I'd appreciate any advice on a better solution.

    some friends just gave me a couple of pairs of small skis to pass on - both are free + shipping

    1. some older, beat up 70cm Fischers w/ Salomon binders - I do not know the history, but these have clearly been several kids' first skis - perfect for a toddler - bindings adjust to fit multiple size boots - gone to bagtagley

    2. a bit newer 90cm Salomon Crossmax jr skis and binders - well used, but in good condition - GONE to jimmyawesome

    happy to pass these on to some future Mags - have fun kids - ski fast, take chances

    By 4 my daughter was in real boots and real skis.
    Before that I did the plastic skis with regular boots around the yard and parks. Dog loved to chase her and she loved to ski away from doggers.

    The mags are such a cool group. This is a great thread. Will be back if my nephew takes up the sport. We are going to get lessons and have him try it this season. Carry on the spirit
    I need to go to Utah.
    Utah?
    Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?

    So after 15 years we finally made it to Utah.....


    Thanks BCSAR and POWMOW Ski Patrol for rescues
