I’m going to have to start looking around for a ski or combo skis that can be used as a slalom ski for my oldest girl.

I know if I jump on the one ski from the “house” combo skis on my boat I can hardly turn.

Any Ideas of what ski/skis I should look for/at???

I know O’Brien makes the mapple jr but it’s a 61 (may be too big). She is 80 lbs and a beginner but I don’t think it would help her to be on a pair of low end combo or one ski from a low end combo set..

Any thoughts?

I'd just start looking for some short combo sets on ebay. If she takes to it, you can rebay it and upgrade to a kids comp ski.

I'm with Doug. I'm not sure I'd sink big money into something before I was sure.

I have a pair of O’Brien Contenders (58s) in the garage but the bindings are just like any other combo bindings and I’m sure they (the ski) perform like that too.

Let me know if/when you are going to go for something so we don’t run the bid up on each other..
