Blizzard Rustler Team JR. Skis · Boys' · 2022
These are a fun and playful ski from Blizzard that are made to shred but also feel nice and cruisy on the groomers. The woodcore is responsive while the titanal laminates will keep it feeling nice and stable. They are going to be slightly wider underfoot (92mm) which means they'll float on the occasional pow day but they've also got an impressive sidecut and a nice rocker/camber profile that's going to allow you to lay them on edge and carve some deep turns on the groomers.
Salomon QST Ripper M Skis · Kids' · 2022
Anyone really looking to make their mark on the hill. These will allow you to surf powder, carve downhill, rip through the trees, whatever you please! These skis are durable and will allow you to progress very quickly!
This full poplar wood core creates for a playful ski that has optimum stability and a sensational rebound. Furthermore, this ski construction filters vibrations and creates a nice ski to snow contact. The twin rocker profile on this ski paired with a shorter turn radius creates a ski that will switch from edge to edge quickly in the bumps. Ultimately, this ski is for the skier that wants to float in the powder, play in the bumps and have a strong ski on the groomers.
Blizzard Sheeva Team Skis · Girls' · 2021
The Blizzard Sheeva is 90mm underfoot making it the perfectly waisted ski to carve well while also having a rockered tip and tail to float in the powder. Blizzard makes some of the snappiest and most responsive skis: they've implemented their Carbon Flipcore technology to ensure that within the Sheeva! This ski will perform well on groomed East Coast, remain responsive in bumps, and provide you with flotation when you travel west!
The Sheeva has a dynamic flex pattern that gives you a stiffer mid ski and softer tips and tails. This means you get great control on edge and won't have trouble when things get icy with the sturdy core underfoot. And the softer tips and tails will keep the ski easy to pivot and won't catch. The tip and tail rocker make turn initiation easier and will add some float for days you see fresh snow.
Line Sir Francis Bacon Shorty Skis · Boys' · 2022
A great ski that is playful, yet flexible and still very stable. With the 3D convex twin tip and tail, these skies are equally good at jibbing as they are at hitting the moguls and getting through the trees or into other icier conditions. They're perfect for riding switch or doing butters. With the 107mm waist that's good for soft snow, these things work really well for those trips to the resort. A great all-mountain ski that is very surfy and slashy and super fun.
Atomic Bent Chetler Mini Skis · 2022
This ski does about anything. Bent Chetler is a well known model for having versatility from groomers, to trees and bumps. This ski can be called the 1-ski to do it all. With awesome graphics, there isn't anything you can go wrong with this ski!
Salomon N TNT JR Skis · 2022
Great deal for learning. At 76mm underfoot they are narrower and easier to initiate turns on, giving you super control.
All-mountain ski with a preference for groomers. Excellent choice for beginners or intermediates.
Head Kore Team SW Skis · Kids' · 2021
At 85mm underfoot these skis are a perfect blend for all-mountain skiing! They're twin tip so you can take them in the park and they'll excel on any groomed run! They're wide enough and have early rise in the tip and tail to be fun off-piste in the bumps, trees, and powder as well! Really great option for you!!
Extremely lightweight for easy maneuvering and playing in the park! Great edge hold on icy days and a real pivoty feel in tight terrain like moguls and trees.
K2 Indy Skis + FDT 4.5 Bindings · Kids' · 2022
The K2 Indy Kids Skis are specifically made to help with easier control for younger, newer skiers! These have what K2 calls a "catch-free rocker" which is designed to help avoid catching edges, create effortless turn initiation, and help build confidence on skis!
Salomon QST Max JR Skis + C5 GW Bindings · Boys' · 2022
The Salomon QST is an all-mountain ski that offers a versatile underfoot width, with a rocker that is perfect for ripping the groomers, controlled skiing, and having fun on those powder days. But they perform best on the hardpack.
