    Carson's are 80, 83 or 85 underfoot depending on length, that seems good to me. Our granddaughter has no problem in deep powder with her 136's. BTW Moment made the Zephyr for kids, 101 underfoot, unfortunately they have not made them for three or four years. Last fall it looked like Moment was going to do a small run if they could get orders for 20 pair. Luke Jacobson, CEO of Moment was working on it but then they were so busy they decided to not do it. He found two pair in their warehouse which I bought. I might have a pair of used 146's that I might be willing to sell. My wife who is 4'10" tall and weighs 95 lbs absolutely loves them.

    Damn, sounds like my kiddo needs a pair of those!

    She'd need the shortest length, though.

    Well, itís not like they rode a lift together and had to off board at the same time.

    Iíd probably be interested! 9 yr old was on 143 shiro juniors this year and the 8yr old on some 131 praxis that are 101 under foot.

    and after googling, found a thread in here from Moment, indicating a big sale on 2017-18 model in the 121 length. So I pulled the trigger for next season. Will need to get bindings too, I guess.

    We've been doing the seasonal rental thing forever, but considering her skiing level (can ski almost anything!) it seems like a good ski would be helpful.

    She's on a junior race team, hopefully the skis will work for that too (she's not hardcore, at least not yet!).

    Our Granddaughter races on Nordica Doberman, two different lengths for SL and GS. Next year she has a new pair in 146 for GS and her shorter GS skis from this year become her SL skis. Her Carson's are 136 and we are debating if she will need new Carson's for next year. The next size up is 152 which is a pretty big jump considering they are 85 underfoot. She is 4'10', tall for a 10 year old, going to wait to see how tall she is in the fall.

    I know you guys in the know are super stoked on the Moments but I will throw this out there. Ski Essentials has those Pinnacle Jr w M7 binders for 239 and they have had 10% off days so we got em for 215 shipped with M7 binders on plates. No experience with the skis but the reviews are very strong and they are wood core full adult ski build burly but still pretty light.

    After that order we found a 20% off coupon w free ship everything except 2020 (now expired sorry) which we used to score $320 166 Black Pearl's for the wife and $115 dollar 14m SGJ non compliant for U14 USSA racers 142 (because radius is less than 17m) Dobermans...but will be a better ski for her and will pair well with her 130 Blizzard SL setup from Mikey.

    Worth keeping an eye on their site and mail for future site wide deals.

    In case anybody cares here is the tip rocker underfoot camber on the Pinnacles. They still have some left in 139 and 119. I would have shared deal earlier when coupons were active but my friend has 3 kids and he was thinking about scoring them...but he didn't.

    They did have a banked slalom event a couple weekends later on a Sunday with freestyle jumping the night before. We were out west for that.
    She raced a USSA / Metro Cup at Chestnut on Sunday March 10th. I checked the results and the vast majority of racers were WJR with very few WIIJR kids. I only saw a couple from Chestnut and then a scattering of other WIIJR's from GPK and Wilmot. Maybe there was another race that they were at?

    Edit....okay. Was up there Friday that weekend only and I don't remember even knowing about that race. We have a USSA race every year earlier in the season but my girl took a pass in favor of free ski lappage.

    Maybe next year drop me a PM if she heads this way and we'll get her sorted from the crowd.

    Corbetts also has the Pinnacle Jrs. for $190 CAD. So, basically free for our southern folk.

    https://www.corbetts.com/2018-k2-pinnacle-jr-skis/

    Or with bindings for $260 CAD - https://www.corbetts.com/2018-k2-pin...-7-0-bindings/

    Really debating getting a pair for my kids next year. But I just spent way too much on his race skis.

    Another quick edit from December (almost forgot how good that month was).
    Once again the 11 year old is wearing the head camera thingy.
    Includes cameo of little sister stopping at the camera (LOL).

    Spent the day ripping w an amazing group of kids. Basically the Intermountain U8, U10 and U 12 champions for a birthday party.

    Unreal to watch people reactions to a posse of kids that ski this strong.

    Great fun

    Every day we ski at Loveland, Coon Hill stares at us in the face. Ben's (my 12-year old) biggest ski goal for this year was to ski it. Yesterday, we skied it in perfect powder conditions. Not bad for May 19th.
