Equipment Needed

 

When a child graduates to U14 and above, discipline-specific skis are recommended–one for slalom races and one for GS races. The slalom ski is shorter and wider at the tip to assist with the tight courses. The GS ski is narrower and longer to assist with the higher speeds. There are precise height and weight charts that dictate the appropriate size for your racer.
